Who loved musical chairs as a young'un? Here's some music. Shall we play? We could all get up and walk around our chairs.
Lately, I've been busy remodeling my bedroom. I picked an "old hymn" type of theme with antique paper and music notes. While looking for inspiration on Pinterest (one of my all time favorite social medias) I found this chair.
For the treble clef, I found a clip art piece and printed it out on regular paper, cut it out and traced it onto the fabric. Then I used a ruler to make the lines.
Next, I purchased some black fabric paint, and laid the fabric out on a piece of cardboard. I painted the traced design, very carefully, using a small brush. I used a piece of paper in my attempt to make the lines clear and straight, although I think some scotch tape would have worked better.
I had to let the paint dry several times between the painting of the lines so that I wouldn't smear what was still wet.
Here's the design once I finished painting it. Not perfect. But for a gal who is artistically challenged and apparently incapable of drawing a straight line, acceptable.
The next step, or course, is to remove the cushion from the chair frame. I did this by turning it upside down and unscrewing it from the frame. Then I painted the frame of the chair in the same cream color I used on my walls. I decided on two coats.
As a finishing touch, I painted some musical note wood decals (found at Hobby Lobby) black. I glued one to the back of the chair frame.
Finally, reattach the seat cushion and VOILA!
