Chalkboard and Coffee Chair Design

Coffee Crush Here.
Chalkboard Love a close second.
So how happy is this to combine the two!
Pin It!
I'm taking this little old lovely...
and bringing her into the "Starbucks" era.
Dry brushing white on black.
Transferring chalked back to painted surface.
Shading with Raw Sienna.
and rubbing antiquing wax on the edges.
Because she needed a hip replacement,
I had to drill large sink holes
and then pilot holes with a smaller bit
to anchor the sides to the back with screws.
Then using mattress foam
and a coffee sack I reupholstered the chair seat.
You can find details on padding a chair seat
on my other blog posts (high gloss white) Here
 and (coastal chair) Here.
where to sit ....
or to sell.....
Pin It!
So a 1980's do goes 2013 trendy
with Chalkboard and Coffee.
Thanks for stopping by !

I miss my espresso!! :) LOL I live 60 miles one day to the nearest Starbucks (small town midwest now) which is crazy for a Portland hometown girl.

The chair is just adorable and clever. Did you happen to keep or to sell?

Thanks for sharing with us, and it's always great to see creative minds at work. :)

Adorable Deb! Love it with your red stripe rug. A great place to sit, have a cup, and enjoy your view of the lake I'll bet!

Christy James said...

Love this, Deb...and I'm not a coffee drinker! Love the "no coffee no worker" part:)

Debbie @ MeandMyDIY said...

Oh Deb. It looks so great. I love the graphics, and the fabric you used for the seat goes perfectly. I'm sure you wouldn't have any trouble selling it. I'd snap it up so fast it would probably make your head spin!


Maria said...

How pretty!!! You did a great job on the chair, it looks awesome! What a cute idea!

Kristi Stewart said...

I love your chair! But I would also like to know where you found that beautiful red/tan stripe rug.


Jeannine said...

I love this! Super creative and fun, and of course... it's COFFEE!!

Deb Hrabik said...

I have many people ask where I got my red and white stripe rug. It came from a small shop in Atchison, Kansas but they don't carry them anymore. Darn, I checked because I wanted a black one they had too!

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

This is one darn cute chair...your idea was soooo AWESOME! Thank you for sharing it at my party.

Oh I love it, what an adorable chair and such a creative idea. Great tutorial also. I would love for you to link this up to my Inspire Me Tuesday party that is ongoing --

I think this would inspire anyone to be creative. Hugs, Marty

Unknown said...

It's always coffee time here, so that little chair would feel right at home here too. You do beautiful work, Deb!

Good Time Charlie said...

As always, original and beautiful work. I second what Bliss said. A true artist! Sharing at my 100th party today! Plus a big giveaway.

Gotta love art with a coffee theme! I absolutely adore your chair transformation. I'm visiting from Petticoat Junktion, and am now your newest follower. Also pinned this. My vote is to sit on it, not sell it. Looking forward to catching up on your posts.
