Before & After: Ordinary to Ombre Chair

The Divine Minimalist

This old chair has a great shape, but the finish had become worn. Time for an upgrade. Ah, but not just any upgrade. This chair got updated in modern ombre.

What better way to update this old chair than to bring it zooming into the present with a trendy ombre paint treatment? The folks over at The Divine Minimalist started out by sanding and cleaning the old wooden chair. Once sanded, they applied a couple coats of primer. After the primer had dried, they started painting at the top of the chair. Then, they moved on to the middle section, which they painted blue, and finally finished it off by adding navy to the lower portion of the chair. The finished chair is totally out of the ordinary and right on trend.
