Painted Legs

I have this leopard Parsons chair that has become a "not so favorite" in my home.  I didn't want to get rid of it, I just needed to update it a bit.  So, I decided to freshen it up by simply just painting the legs White.  I know it doesn't sound like rocket science, nor does it sound like the most genius idea ever, but it turned out great and I am so happy with it.  Seriously, can paint get any better?  It's cheap, it can transform anything in a snap, and {almost} anyone can do it, bam!

Now this is where I need your help.  The simple White pillow or the Robin's Egg Blue bird pillow? And here are more awesome pics of painted legs on chairs to inspire you.  Enjoy and Happy Thursday!
Teal and Yellow.  Awesome.

P.S.  Doesn't the above chair remind you of the fabulous chair that Kristy at Hyphen Interiors painted?  Yes, that is right...she actually painted the upholstery.  Genius!  Check out her tutorial here.
I love the classic natural wood chair, but with an unexpected painted leg.

Again the beautiful combo of Yellow and Turquoise.

Love the modern Tulip table with the country Windsor style chair.

Wow, loving this transformation and your blog! As for the pillow, I'd go with the white. It makes the chair legs pop even more.

Hey Brittany-

Two things:

1.The chair turned out fantastic.

2. You totally inspired me to do something. I'm so excited. Exclamation Point. I went to lowes, and while I was there picking up spray paint for a lovely project I will blog about when the weather permits, I picked up extra cans. Remember the table in today's post (the one with the color that pops? I'm gonna do it. Well, just the legs. :) My table is going to have some sexy looking legs. When I do get the project finished, I am linking up to your project so all the world can see that I got it from my blonde haired blogosphere little sister. :)
