Chair+Table2This seven post series was inspired by a table and chairs that I drooled over at Slumberland Furniture for nearly seven months. The new set would have cost me nearly $1000 and I just couldn’t take the leap. Instead, I decided to go for an table and chairs upcycle. Working with this table and chairs was a labor of love, but the total cost was less than $100. Plus, I love the finished product. This was only my second upcycle project! Anyone can do this. I’m a beginner, too. The finished table now resides in my sewing and writing studio. One chair sits by my sewing machine, another at my computer and the other two are nestled around our kitchen table.

Blue to Match {5 of 7}

Adding color to a project with a base coat of white (or any other color) is easy! (I don’t know why I thought it would be hard, I just did!)

I had one quart of blue semi-gloss paint & I simply dipped my 1 inch wide brush lightly into the can. I didn’t coat the whole brush with paint, but just got a little. Then, I quickly/chaotically/messily/methodically brushed blue on all of my chairs and the legs of the table! So easy!

This is all I had to do.

Brush on some color & enjoy!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I am from a family of all girls. I always keep a journal. John & I were married back in 2013. It was a miracle then & it is now. We had three kids between Oct 2014 & August 2018 : Joslyn Shea, J.D., and Jesse Lee. We remodeled two houses & moved three times in our first 5 years. I grew up in Missouri, but was transplanted to South Dakota. I am working on my masters at Sioux Falls Seminary as of 6.1.19.

I started Sierra Shea & Co. as a space to curate encouragement for all women toward creative, redemptive lives as daughters of the King of Kings.
