Ombre Chair

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Ombre - Comes from the French word meaning shaded or shading.

I'm sure you've noticed the explosive trend of Ombre hair and fashion filling the streets of Hollywood.

Even if you weren't aware of the term Ombre I'm sure you've spotted the ever popular hairstyle trend, seen by the likes of Drew Barrymore & Klohe Kardashian and all the multitudes in between.

As any trend goes, it has spilled over into home decor & furniture and I LOVE it!

I have had this tired old chair sitting in our garage for weeks and I had lost all inspiration for it.  I knew I wanted to do something different from the chairs I've done in the past.  Then yesterday it hit me...Ombre!!

I picked up 3 cans of spray paint and if you've read my paint reviews post then you know spray paint is not my first choice, but for this type of project I knew it would be perfect.

What do you think? Do you love the Ombre style as much as I do?

Linking up here and I will be sharing this project over at Mom's Fun Money.

Well that's gorgeous! I love ombre in crafts and home decor.....not so much in hair!

Adorable! I wouldn't have thought to do a chair in ombre, but it works really well here. :)

The ombre effect looks beautiful on your chair. I really like the colours you chose. This paint technique really updates the style of your chair!

Wow, I like it. It's kind of like tie dye, only in a good way. Very cool. Dee from My Painted Stuff.
