Delicious Purple Tufted Halloween Wingback Chairs

I found these wingback tufted chairs and actually squealed with delight. I had been looking for these type of chairs to paint for Halloween. I know...you are thinking...painting...REALLY...but, they are more for looks for my halloween theme this year of witches with the colors purple and black.  I had found a pair earlier but there was no way I was paying $30 a peice per chair($60 a pair, YIKES!!) so when I found these and they reduced the price down to $5 and $10 for the chairs($15 for the pair)...I knew they were the chairs for me. Don't they look like the perfect chairs to be painted purple and used to flank my fireplace for Halloween!! Eeeeek, Squeel!! Yeah....I am so excited!
I wanted tufted chairs because once they are painted, it is these details that make them look so cool.
I didn't know what color of paint would look best. I bought a "rich plum" color and a "purple" spray paint color. The pink chair covered perfectly with the purple color and because of the pink color underneath it made it a delicious, rich color!!
Yummy Purple!!
The white chair wasn't so easy due to the light color of the original fabric. I ended up painting it the "rich plum" color(top can) first and then added the "purple" color over the top. This was after I had originally painted it the "purple" color(the bottom can) and then decided that it need a richer color so I switched to the "rich plum" color and then added the "purple" color over top to make it look like the other chair.
This was not the final coat of paint as you can tell due to the tuft seen here that wasn't painted yet but, you can see the two colors of paint working together to create a beautiful purple color.
The pink fabric covered with the purple paint makes it look like a delicious purple velvet. Unfortunately it is a little deceiving because of the paint makes it not as soft as velvet but, not too bad. It is definetely more for looks and it looks AWESOME!!!!
Now for the WHOLE reveal............drum roll..........okay so I probably don't need a drum roll but, I am really excited to have this done for my halloween decorating this year. I can't wait to start using all these different projects I have been doing and to be able to show how I decorated with them. I know I've only shown the projects but soon I'll show how I am going to decorate with them.
The white wing back tufted chair made into a purple halloween chair......YEAH...it turned out so cool!!
I painted the legs black to go with the purple/black theme. The legs had a little bit of dings and dents so I couldn't leave them brown plus they look way cooler black.
This is the pink tufted wingback chair made a purple halloween chair....SO CUTE!!
Here's the chairs as a pair...a little different in coloring between the two but, SO cute as a set!!
My neighbor and I actually sat in these chairs after I took pictures and watched the kids play. It was pretty funny...sitting outside in purple wingback tufted chairs. LOL I am sure you don't see that everyday as you drive by...women sitting back relaxing as the kids play in the driveway with their sidewalk chalks in purple wingback chairs. LOL
I can't wait to get these inside and have them flank the fireplace for Halloween (although it was fun to have them outside for a day, LOL)! So excited...delicious purple tufted halloween wingback chairs with black painted legs to set the tone for my Halloween season!!

I can't believe you painted chairs - I can't wait to see them with your decor and see your "vision."

Cass, you are so crazy. I think that they will look great with your Halloween decor. What will you do with them after though? You house is going to be so spooky. Luv it!

Wow, this is so cool! I need a teal wingback chair, but have only found two online... that are way too expensive. And, it will cost around $600 to buy a used one and re-upholster it. So, maybe I could paint one! Any thoughts or tips?

Hyphen Interiors said...

Oh, and, where do you get spray paint in colors like purple and teal?

I have a fabric chair I want to paint. Did you use fabric spray paint? I have seen it, but never used it. Your chairs are really fab!

During Halloween I saw some purple chairs at Hobby Lobby and just thought they were so cute. I am inspired to spray me some ;)

If I remember right I used four but one of them was the wrong color. I used three cans for both chairs. Hope that helps!!
