Title: Super fun Zetti Chair!
Post by: AlwaysInspired on May 23, 2010 04:11:44 PM
I was asked to paint a child's lawn chair for an auction for charity. The proceeds will be donated to our local art center that I do a lot for. I was so excited! I went with a Zetti style fun and bright colors! ;D

One arm is stripes! I also sewed the little cushion using fabrics to match my color scheme.

A fun view of the cushion.

One arm is harlequin style.

I painted create on the front of the chair to keep with an artsy theme.

I drew up a zetti bird for one side of the arm supports.

And a cute little zetti girl with a paint brush for the other arm support.

A fun shot of the back slats of the chair. Hearts, polka dots, and a wonky zetti stripe.

The back of the chair.

I hope it sells for lots of money at the auction!
Thanks for looking! ;D

 This is SO cool! I ♥ the leggy birdie!

The bright colors look awesome with the light distressing, and that pillow is adorable.

Good luck with the auction!

This is so great, that it should bring top dollar, is it made to stay outside?

I sprayed it with a good clear coat so it could be outside, but the cushion would have to be brought in as it is just plain quilting cotton.

This is seriously incredible.

What is "Zetti"? I looked it up on Google and didn't find much, but I'm digging the style.

Zetti style is used a lot in the papercrafting area. The style is pretty wide open. I like to use bright colors, but some zetti is a bit more subdued. A great place to look to get a good idea of the style is here.

I'm going to tell the hubby it is time to scout out some unfinished adult sized ones for me to do. Although the painting time the little one took scares me! I did the layers so I could get the neat distressing.
