new {old} bistro chair

it's new with an {old} look You may have seen part of it peeking out from under my new farmhouse table.

This chair was purchased new from Kmart for about $30.
It was originally bright turquoise which I dulled down with first primer and then flat olive green spray paint. Then I sanded a ton to make it look {old}.
I got the idea from The French Country Cottage and was so excited to finally find an affordable bistro chair.

I'm lovin' this new {old} chair.


  1. very pretty...love the paint and distressed treatment.

  2. I just love bistro chairs and you did a great job making it look old!

  3. Very pretty. I thought it was vintage when I first looked at it. Who knew!


  4. I just today came to your blog via Funky Junk Interiors and am now one of your newest followers. I, too, bought the turquoise bistro chair (3 of them) from KMart. I had planned to paint them white but after seeing yours I'm not so sure - they came out great!

  5. Awww!! Thanks for the mention!!! I just saw this today Michele when I saw your bistro chair in your header! I remember you left me a comment that you were going to pick some of these darling chairs up ~ I love how yours came out! Don't you just absolutely love these? Go Kmart!! :)
