I do like chippy paint.
The chippier the better.
Seriously, chippy and chippier aren’t words?
They’re words to me.
This cute little chair came from My Favorite Junk Shop.
The color was great and there was a little black paint showing where the top coat of blue was chipping off.
A bargain at $8.
I’ve said it before….. don’t do any extra un-called for painting. I am all about conserving time and energy.
It could be called laziness by some.
I just took my electric sander and 80 grit sandpaper and went to town on the chair. I found there was also a coat of yellow paint sandwiched between the blue and black.
I did the same thing with the Red, White, and Blue Chest from the Nashville Flea Market.
It already had at least 3 coats of paint so I distressed it and was done. It’s really cute if I do say so myself.
I think the chair is cute too.
What do you think?
