I love a good DIY.
But only if it’s easy, quick, & cheap ( << sounds kinda slutty ).
But seriously: who has time to like, sit down & whip up a gnarly-ass DIY with five million supplies?
Hmmm, eerr, ehh, I guess Erica from Fashionlush is pretty damn good at DIY’s…
But raise your hand if you’re good at DIY’s.
Not I, said fly.
Ok, so here’s a rad story: my cute, cute friend, Natalie ( << she’s seventeen!! ) from Halfway to Harmony helped me find something that I’d been searching high & low for…a vintage peacock chair.
I casually mentioned to her that my life would be over, like over, over, if I didn’t own a peacock chair.
No peacock chair= deep depression.
She goes to Palm Springs & finds not one peacock chair, but TWO!
So now I have this white babe & another sex kitten, vintage peacock chair ( thx God! ) living in my casa.
Anyway, let’s talk about this DIY: Natalie brought the chair to my house & gave it a major facelift. Material used were:
First we primed the chair & then we sprayed the whole thing stark white. This took about an hour & my finger(s) kinda hurt- if we’re being honest- BUT it was so worth it.
After the whole chair sprayed white, Natalie & I painted the little detail in gold with a tiny paint brush.
When the peacock chair was dry, we added Natalie’s handmade ( yes, I know right?! Handmade— this girl’s the bomb.com. ) teal/gold/white tassel. She specially made the tassel for my home’s color scheme. If you’re interested in ordering handmade tassel ( price: $49 ), e-mail her at: firstname.lastname@example.org & she’ll kill it for you. Also, she sewed & designed the gold pillow…love.
Oh, did I mention she’s seventeen. Diiiiieeeee.
Me at seventeen= drinking a Coors Light in a random, abandoned high school parking lot attempting to break the midnight curfew like a loser.
Anyway, you can do this DIY to any chair in your home. Literally any chair works.
So find a random chair & make it pretty— because it opens the whole house x 10.
Everyday I look at my DIY peacock chair & freaking swoon.
I mean, I don’t sit on it- because let’s be honest, I’m too OCD for that. But hey, I look at it & smile real big.
