I first saw this idea for a Halloween chair on Facebook. The link led me to a blog post by asentimentallife where she found this amazing chair at Goodwill already painted up! What a cutie and a great find!

I started thinking about making one of my own and putting it in my booth to spice it up for Fall.
I looked through my stash of chairs. See photo here. Remember- don’t judge :)
I spray painted it black with Rustoleum x 2 in a black matte finish. I tried to avoid the seat but didn’t bother to tape it off. I kind of regretted that later on…
Once the black paint was dry, I taped off the spindles closest to the chair and the little curved side pieces. Then I painted away with Valspar’s Autumn Blaze. It’s ORANGE! As in –construction zone- but that’s what I was looking for in this chair…. Just need to find some more bright orange projects to use up this quart!
I used my Silhouette to cut a Jack-o-Lantern face stencil out of cardstock. I taped it on with painters tape and used a make-up sponge wedge to apply the paint. I peeled it back and revealed the cutest little punkin’ face you ever did see :)
I hand distressed the black with a little sanding block and fancied her up with some raffia and some Halloween candy corn ribbon.
And here she is ….
I hope someone likes her, and she finds a place of honor amidst a sea of mums on a beautiful covered porch… Or if not, she can sit on my porch, and my kids will love her!
