Old Chair Earns a Red Star

Happy Monday!  Our weekend was delightful and hope yours was too...the weather helped as it has been unseasonably warm!  I have a little chair makeover to share with you this morning.  I found this chair at a local garage sale last summer.  The price was right so I scooped it up and decided that it needed a fresh coat of yellow paint.  Here is the before picture.
After painting the chair a soft yellow, I distressed it and rubbed stain all over to achieve a worn look. I created a star stencil out of contact paper, using my cricut machine.  I stenciled the red star in the center of the chair's seat.  Here's the after picture.
 Have a great Monday!
