We’ve had this chair for a while–it’s one of the few in our house that is wobble-free, but I wasn’t a fan of the reproduction Colonial stenciling. I’ve been thinking of painting this chair in two tones or “dip-dyeing” it (as the pinners of Pinterest put it). I wasn’t sure if I should go with a light hue on top or bottom. I admire the switched logic of this chair posted on Mobel Pobel:
In the end I went with the less-gravity-defying version: Ben Moore’s pale elephant pink on top, Moore’s italiano rose for the legs, and a light brush of poly. I’m pleased–it’s adding some color to my winter days!

I can’t get the after photos. Too many redirects, it says.
The before photo screams to be dipped!
Sorry about the redirects. Trust me–it looks good, yummy even!
A vivid transformation!
I believe you gave us this chair! One of the few in our house that is actually functional–and now it’s pink! xoxo
