This is the beat up chair covered in paint splatters that I grabbed off the curb. It had seen better days.
I started by sanding it down a bit to at least even it out for painting. I enjoy a rustic look so I mainly sanded off the paint splatters.
Next I sprayed it with white paint primer. I forgot to take a picture of this step oops! I cut three stars out of contact paper and attached them on the top of the chair. I spray painted the back with blue paint. After waiting for it to dry completely, I removed the star stickers.
I taped off the seat with blue painters tape and painted it red. When I removed the tape it left me with red and white stripes on the seat.
I felt like it was still missing something, so I hand wrote in cursive "My Country Tis of Thee" on the four white lines. It fit perfectly since it is four verses long. I then wiped a little wood stain over the white sections with an old t-shirt to dull down the white tones.
