Chairs and Light Bulbs

I have a hard time sticking to one design scheme.  I'm drawn to vintage, retro, industrial, early American, primitives, French country...  There's too much cool stuff out there to pick just one!

I've been looking for some of these old school chairs and found one this summer at a flea market.  I thought it would be a great piece to combine some mid-century and industrial looks.


I used my Silhouette to cut a stencil of industrial filament light bulbs.


I used Mason Blanche's Wrought Iron black chalk paint to paint the stencil.  That way I didn't have to worry about priming or sanding the previous finish.


Once it dried, I pulled the stencil off.  That's always the fun part!


 I topped it off with two coats of wipe-on poly.
The black and white graphic bring new life to this chair.  Of course, the turquoise legs don't hurt!
