This is a chair I made for our Heard Museum exhibit. This started as a plain raw wood chair. I spray painted it all hot pink and then added lime green to the headboard and arm rests. i painted a girl on the headboard and stamped letters. I also stenciled stars on the seat and used a rubber stamp of a map. I then went over the whole thing with sand paper to rough it up. Next, I glued milagros all over certain areas.
It still needed some love, so I pulled out my secret stash of French yarn that my friend Jaimee brought me from Paris a couple years back. I glued it on the front panels and the top of the headboard, added spools of thread and beads and a crown for the girl! I slathered the whole thing in sparkle varnish.
