Decoupaged Child's Chair

Before:

This little chair was picked up from the local Goodwill for $4 a few months ago.

Isn't she sweet? I could tell that her former owner must have really loved her.

Unfortunately, the dingy paint and crayon marks were a little too shabby
but not enough chic for me.


Using Mod Podge and decorative paper (cut into strips), I created a unique, one of a kind piece.

(Recognize this picture, facebook fans? Did you guess I was redoing furniture?)

After:

I'm going to coat it again with polyurethane for durability.

But with a house full of boys,

the next question is...

What am I going to do with a pretty little butterfly chair? Hmmm.

She might just have to find another little girl who will love her like before.

  1. Very pretty! It would look gorgeous in a vintage little girl's room:) If had a daughter I would gladly take it off your hands!

  2. Either that or make it your "time-out" chair. It would harass your boys wonderfully. I say this because I have 3 boys myself and their expressions would be absolutely priceless. :)

  4. I am so so so inspired! I am hunting all over craigslist for 2 chairs for my boys now. I'm thinking truck paper, or sport paper, or maybe one of each! Thanks for the great idea- so precious!
