Deck Chair Diy...

deckchair-diyA few weeks ago I was contacted and asked if I would like to accept a challenge to upcycle/diy a simple deck chair. I love these types of projects and while Im itching to get my hands on my new home to decorate and diy, I thought this would be a fun little project to try out!

Along with the deck chair I was sent a £30 hobbycraft voucher to help with my project. With this I bought a selection of fabric paint to use on the canvas fabric that could be washed and wiped if needs be. I decided to paint the frame a pale dove grey, I mixed anthracite and white rustoleum furniture paint together to get the colour I wanted and set to work.
Once it was dry I decided to print different triangle shapes in the fabric paint on the canvas in the colours navy, aqua blue and a bright coral. For this I simply made the desired triangles out of potato stamps. So quick and easy!
