Adirondack Chair Makeover

For this Adirondack chair makeover, I started with an unfinished base. I wanted a comfy place to sit and create with a sketchpad and pens. I drilled a hole in the armrest so you can set a cup of writing utensils (or an icy beverage of your liking). Using my Crafty Chica paints and papers, I covered every inch with colorful accents.

The heart in the center says “dream” – as in the verb. You sit in the chair and let your imagination take over. To drive the point home, across the front of the seat, it says “play first, work later.”
I sealed it all with decoupage (shiny). I even added a bit of glittery sparkle over the heart!



Thank you so much to Kathy Peterson and The Cedar Store for inviting me to be a part of the blog hop. Check back next Tuesday to see the last stop on the cyber tour!


Love & light,

  1. Kathy, that is beautiful. I especially love the tiles. Are those paper? Some of your products? Just awesome.

  2. Kathy, your chair is amazing! I love your color choices, the little tile squares that look like miniature quilts, the words that are placed here and there, and especially the cup holder. Anyone that sits in your chair will be sure to have “sweet dreams”!

  3. Gorgeous use of colors! I would love to know too if those little squares are tiles? Those are just so charming and colorful…Please let us know 🙂
