Garage Sale Doll Chair Makeover

by - June 03, 2011

I got this little doll chair last weekend in Virginia while visiting my sister.  At first I thought it would make for a good naughty or time-out chair for my boys, but then I decided to give it a French-y makeover instead.  The boys were definitely relieved!

I gave it a few coats of white spray paint.  Then I sanded some random edges to give it a shabby look.  I printed off my image from The Graphics Fairy, distressed the edges and mod podged that to the front.  Still missing something.  That's when I added the skeleton key coffee tag with some twine.

Still trying to decide where to put it but I do love my new little chair!

  4. Great blog, love the little childs chair you made over in a french style. I have a little wooden hand made childs rocking chair that has been in my family and passed around for about 50 years or so. I'am redoing it for my latest grandaughter who is 10 weeks old. Her mom(my daughter)is doing her baby's room in pink and black...cute and frenchy. She bought a black crib and dresser and painted the room a soft pink.
