Posted by on


Make a beautiful Fornasetti inspired chair with an inexpensive Ikea chair. Watch the video tutorial here:

Step 1

Ikea Chair
Clip art images of your choice
E-6000 Spray Adhesive
Black Krylon spray paint
Americana Multi Surface Satin Paint in Gold
Krylon metallic gold paint pen
Minwax Polycrylic
Spray water bottle

Step 2

Spray paint your chair black
Cut out your clip art
Spray the front of your clip art pieces with water
Spray the back of your clip art pieces with E-6000 Spray Adhesive

Step 3

Adhere the images on your chair and flatten with a dry cloth
*This will also take off some of the moisture
When the images are dry, carefully edge the chair with a gold Krylon paint pen
Using Gold Americana Multi Surface Satin, tape and paint 3" up on the foot of each leg
Coat the entire chair with Minwax Polycrylic Clear Gloss and let dry

Step 4
