Using the toes of boring furniture as an accent is no new idea, and quite honestly, I probably should have gone a little bit bolder with what I left as exposed wood and what I painted teal. But. You know. Whatever. The purple and black had to go and I found this chair on the side of the road. It's going to spend the rest of its days outside on the fire escape anyways.
If I cared to spend more money on this found chair, I would've gone out and bought some outdoor paint. And maybe sanded some of the old paint off. As it is, even with 3 coats of indoor paint (Behr's "Beach Towel") and 2 coats of Polycrilic, the paint will likely peel off sooner rather than later. Or the Polycrilic will yellow. Or something equally grotesque. I can hardly wait!
