DIY project: Colour-blocked chair

By: Mary Levitski

Rustic or sleek? Get the best of both worlds by painting part of an old chair in a bold new hue.

Who says a split personality has to be a bad thing? For this issue's project, managing editor and resident crafter Catherine Therrien blends weathered vintage charm with smooth sophistication by colour-blocking this chair.
