the DIY: MESSAGE ON A CHAIR

We like to put words on things. It's a bit ridiculous but it's fun and that's all that matters when decorating. To do this to your chair you will need some stencils, paint, tape and a sponge brush. We used Handmade Charlotte stencils.

This is our canvas- a plain wooden chair that chills in our living room.

Pick out the letter and/or shapes you would like to stencil on your chair.

We decided to write "SIT HERE" with some triangles on the side.

Tape the stencils on the chair where you want them to go. Maybe I had to alter an 'F' to be an 'E'.

Sponge your brush in the paint and sponge off any excess paint.

Sponge in the letters with the colors you want to use. We used 4 different colors.

Peel off the stencils very carefully, while it's still wet. This way you can fix any mistakes.

There's our chair where it goes in our living room. Presh.
