One of the hot decorating trends is anything nautical, so today I’m showing you just how easy it is to put together a mini adirondack chair decoration!
Mini adirondack chairs are all over Pinterest and Etsy. They are popular as wedding favors, wedding decor and/or cake toppers.
There’s so many fun uses for mini adirondack chairs to add to your nautical decor, whether part of a mantel display or tucked on a shelf.
Save money and do this yourself! DIY!
You can easily find unfinished mini adirondack chairs at craft stores. I found mine at AC Moore on sale for one dollar!
Choose a pretty color of paint to match your decor in a soothing coastal shade.
I chose a pretty blue color that I had on hand.
Unfinished wood soaks up paint very fast, so painting two coats took no time at all. (And notice the small plastic lid holding my paint in the picture above? See my post from last week on reusing plastic lids for crafting!)
To get the paint within the tiny slats, just use the tip of a small paintbrush, like this:
You can see which slats are painted and which are not. It’s a little touch that makes a big difference.
Once your two coats are on, let the chair dry for a few hours before using.
(The height on these chairs is approximately 6 inches, in case you’re wondering.)
Here’s what the back looks like:
This chair is the perfect size to hold a votive candle:
The candle flame reflects nicely off the glass and wood:
You can also use these chairs to show off unique shells. I think it’s a perfect spot for a starfish!
