I am a renter, which means I don't have the freedom to completely remodel or paint my home as I would like. If it were up to me, I think every room would have a giant wall mural painted right on it. But since I have to keep the walls white and can't paint the molding, I had to find other ways to spice up my kitchen...
So I painted the chairs an aqua blue! This was all inspired by a little dish towel I bought at Target a couple months ago for $4...

I made these state pride paper pieces knowing that it would end up somewhere in the kitchen. For my post about this easy project click here! Here it is hanging above the window in front of the kitchen sink. It's a very tall ceiling (about 10 feet high) and this is the only color way up there, so it really stands out.
And then I got really excited when I found an old paint bottle that was aqua color, so I made this....

Then there were the cheap black Stefan chairs from Ikea. I'm sure you've seen them....

Ahhhh much happier! I spray painted the chairs with Krylon Ocean Breeze paint. They could each use another coat, but I ran out of spray paint.
I love my new kitchen!!!! And the hubby actually really likes it, too (why do men doubt our decorating skills?) I think painting the chairs such a bold color was a great way to add character to the room, especially since the walls can't be painted. And I love the new splatter painting and the location of it. Walking in the door puts a smile on my face!
