From Mama Smiles: Child Painted Chair Tutorial
Instead of buying a custom painted child’s chair, let children paint their own! Learn how our kids turned their own inexpensive IKEA chairs into works of art in this child painted chair tutorial.
Child Painted Chair Tutorial
Confession: I didn’t think of this project myself. IKEA used to sell a solid pine table with four chairs for $120. Sadly it appears to have been discontinued, but we snagged two at this price – actually, one set on sale for $99!
They were our dining room table for years, and when we moved to our current house we set them up for the kids in the garage. This spring my two youngers girls asked if they could paint two of the chairs to make them their own. We just use the chairs in our crafting space out in the garage, so I said yes!
I highly recommend this project if you have a child who loves art and is interested in a big art project!
