How to Makeover a Chair With Stripes
Paint some personality on a plain chair in a few easy steps
A nondescript piece of furniture can boast one-of-a-kind style, thanks to strategically painted stripes. For design inspiration, simply look around the room: The decorative bands can match your walls or pick up a complementary color. On this chair, a shade of sage green ('s Spring Valley) echoes the palette of the striped tablecloth. Get the lined look with these easy steps.
Trace a Design
Draw your design on the chair with a watercolor pencil; its soft tip won't dent the wood. Then tape off the lines with painter's tape that resists bleeding.
