Freezer Paper Art: Dining Room Chairs

A little Freezer Paper art goes a long way...I love the transformation of this dining chair!

How to transform your dining chairs:

First...buy a roll of Freezer Paper ( in your grocery store aisle with the aluminum foil, etc.)

1) Print out your image and tape the edges to the NON-SHINY side of the freezer paper.


2) Use an xacto knife to cut out the image. Make sure to go all the way through the freezer paper AND put a piece of cardboard or mat under so you don't wreck up your table.


3) Iron shiny side of freezer paper directly onto your chair. I wasn't scared because I just used painter's drop cloth to cover the chair.


4) Paint! You can use fabric paint, but I just used regular 'ol craft paint. It stains clothes anyway. Let dry and peel the freezer paper off!


5) Tahdah! Cute dining chair! Just make sure it's completely dry before sitting in it.


Other projects I've done using freezer paper art...here and here. You can find another tutorial here.

  2. You always have the best projects. These chairs are so cute! My dining chairs have wood seats instead of upholstered but I might use this idea elsewhere.

  11. Love the chair! So cute. I love all the typography, but my sweet hubby isn't as fond of it, so I have to use much restraint. Thanks for the simple tutorial on the freezer paper stencil process. I have a project plan in my head that I'd love to try it out on!

  14. Great idea - FAB! Did you do just one chair or did you put a different number on each chair?
