Triplets

not identical, but similar traits...

At long last... I am finished with another chair from the dining chair rehab project for my daughter, hooray! I decided since we had 2 colors already, the white and coral, why not add a third... aqua. All three are upholstered in the same fabric to tie them together as a set. Yes, there will be a 4th but I don't have that chair to work on as yet. It's at GradGirl's condo and I plan to paint it when I visit her later this month. What color should it be... white? yellow???
If you missed the before of these chairs look here, it was quite the demo project.

So... on this one I used spray paint. Krylon had the perfect color aqua to match the fabric, they call it Jade Satin. It was easier going on than brushing and dried so quickly between coats, only 1 hour! I did 4 coats in no time at all.

And there you have it! This has been a fun fabric to work with... so many color options for paint!

all in a days work!
