Use an old chair. You have to sand and prime your chair expecially if it has a gloss finish applied to it.
This will be your base color. Paint the whole chair this color. don't worry about imperfections this is a vintage style project.
This is your second base color, dab on over the first coat of paint. You can add as much or as little as you would like.
You're product should look something like this so far.
This is your surface color. It is important that this color does not over power the base coats.
This is where we do the ombre look. Start painting a the stop of the chair leg amd glide vertically all the way down, you want juat enough paint on the brush so it runs out before you reach the bottom of the leg.
Don't worry about imperfections. We will be sanding, smoothing, and blending.
Sand the whole chair smooth, while your doing this the colors should blendnl together at the seams creating a vintage/ ombre look.
This part is optional. I used chalk board paint on the back board of my chair soi can write quoteson it. If you skip this step just paint the back board like you would the reat of the chair... probably with the base colors peeping out round the edges of the back board.
Use thumb tacks and a cushion pad to secure your fabric of choice to the seat board. Pull the fabric tight around the cushion and the board and secure in the back with as many tacks as neccessary.
Your end product should look something like this. Place the seat on chair and secure from underneath with nails, screws, or let the cushion just rest on the chair.
