Edge Painted Chair

Things you should know about me:

1. I can’t rollerskate.

2. I like butter on chocolate Pop-Tarts. 

3. I’m a chicken when it comes to decorating.

Remember these chairs I picked up while doing some birthday thrifting?

I really wasn’t appalled by their honey oak appearance.  I was just appalled by it in my craft room.  My first reaction was to paint them white.  Many of you suggested coral.  I like coral. But white is safe. Coral is brave.  And colorful.  And scary.  (See #3 above.)

So in true Michelle fashion, I painted the chairs white.  And they were boring.

I guess even chicken girl needs some color every now and then. But not too much color.  That’s frightening. So I comprised.

I painted the edges coral (Sherwin Williams Dishy Coral like my button).

Whoa, Right?  So. Much. Color.  I’m wild.

I was inspired by those doors with only the edges painted.  I’m totally too chicken to paint a door edge but a chair edge I can handle.

Now I need to get to work on some art for above that sewing table!  I might add a little something something to the back of those chairs one of these days.  I just need to gather my courage to do so.

What do you think of the colored edges?  Are you a decorating chicken?  Any fellow butter on Pop-Tarts lovers?
