Gray, White, and Yellow Children's Chair

Here's an excuse to go to the thrift store

and hunt for a little children's chair.

Pin It!

After a white base paint,

I added gray stripes.

I dry brushed white over gray.

After chalking the lettering on,

I painted with a fine liner in a darker gray.

Pin It!
Shade all of the yellow edges,

leaving white highlights.

Happy Art for Baby's Room!

Mornin' Sunshine!

Hope you enjoy this design

and might try it yourself,


Here is the pattern if you would like to trace:

So precious! I once did an Interior Design job for a church and as we were figuring out what to do with an old attic space, I came upon over 100 little wooden children's chairs. They had stored them and bought plastic (yuck) ones for the smaller children. I offered my services in return for the little chairs and they were delighted to get rid of them. My husband about croaked! But, over the years, I have used them up for baby gifts, birthdays, etc. Love doing little chairs, Yours is darling.

I have a "thing" for tiny little chairs, and years ago bought them up like crazy to paint and sell in my antiques booth. I love how people hang them on a wall for a little shelf.

Your design is so happy, I'm sure it will be much loved.

This is adorable! What a great addition to a nursery. Did you freehand the sun, or have a stencil to do the shape outline?

So impressive, can't believe you free handed the cursive. I'd love it if you share this at worthwhile wednesdays on crafty allie.

Hi Ali,
I have attached the pattern at the end of my post here. I did freehand, but feel free to use my pattern,

I truly enjoy your blog. it inspires me to try painting. you always post trendy, uplifting art. i especially applaud your photographer - they always catch an angle or detail that i want to see closer. thanks so much for your tutorials - i can see that you love what you do!

Would you mind sharing what type of paint you used and if you sealed it afterwards?
Thank you!

Sure, I like to use Lowes Olympic Paint and Primer in One - "Crumb Cookie" for my white.
I use any gray craft paint. Dutch boy "comforting neutral" is also a gray I like to use. Sometimes I add a little white to lighten the gray.
You can seal with a spray sealer or use polyacrylic brush on sealer.
Happy Painting,
