Chair art inspired by Andy Warhol

Do you remember when I showed you all that crap I got at Goodwill? It was all from Target and was brand-new, but for some crazy reason was being sold at Goodwill.

One of the awesome scores were rolls of vinyl for only $.99 a roll!

I used one of the phone vinyls to make my Custom Phone Wall Pop Art for my sister for her birthday.

Another vinyl pack I got that day was a pack of 4 chairs.

I am really trying to enjoy color more around here at Casa de Hepworths, so I decided it would be a lot of fun to make a set of Andy Warhol inspired pop art prints.

I needed 4 canvases, but canvases are expensive (like $8 each!) so I compromised and bought some flat canvases from Wal-Mart in a 3-pack for about $4 a pack. Since I needed 4 I had to buy 2 packs but I’m sure I’ll find a use for the extra two.

I also bought 4 tubes of acrylic paint at about $.79 each.

The colors I bought are: Folk Art brand – 2553 Lime Green, 509 Sunny Yellow, 2233 Parisian Pink, and Shiny 2710 Calypso Sky.

I just squirted a blob of paint onto the canvas…

…and then painted it smooth.

I did two coats on each canvas.

I rested them each on top of a can of soup so the edges didn’t stick to the table as well as get paint all over the table.

Next I figured out which chair I wanted on each canvas:

Then I peeled them off the paper and stuck ‘em on.

One (of the many) reasons I love these prints is because the vinyl has a beautiful embossed design on it that you can only see from the right angle.

I wanted to show you the design so I took a close-up with the flash.

When these were finished I literally sat and stared at them all.night.long. with a grin from ear to ear. They just make me feel so HAPPY.

  
  

My long-term plan is to put them in my dining room, maybe on a shelf on a hutch. BUT, considering I don’t even have a hutch or any dining room furniture for that matter (the room is bare at the moment) it may be awhile before these cute pop art pics find a permanent home.

I just love them though! Vinyl is so much fun!!

I love anything Andy Warhol inspired.

  12. That is a super cute project. I’d love to shop your GW because mine would want $6.99 for those things. Loving your site.

  13. What a great idea! Thanks for showing me yours! I am so bummed that I paid three dollars and some odd cents for mine.

  14. They came out great. I was shopping at my local goodwill and found the exact same vinyls and I immediately thought off this post. I decided to do the same things except with earth tone colors.

    Thanks for the great idea.
