The Process: Completed the art chair after many months of delays. Spray-painted the background color, then transferred the pencil design with white graphite paper, blocked out colors with hand-brushed acrylic paint, and added line details with POSCA paint pens. Sealed with matte spray varnish for protection.
Reflection: It felt good to breathe new colors and life into my childhood chair. I spent many hours in this chair as a child. Over the years, it’s been a handy step stool and low perch for painting baseboards. Restoring it with my own artwork feels like it’s come full circle. Now it will be chair-ished for many more years to come.
