It cost me around $35. The expensive part was the acrylic pens I ordered on Amazon for $20. The paint was $9 from Lowes. (They have a sale section near their paint department where they sell paints that are returned for $9/gallon) and rest of the money was spent on brushes.
What do you like most about the hack?
I really love that I was able to do a “Indian design” directly on the chairs.
What was the hardest part of the hack?
Not hard but definitely pay attention to make sure you covered each and every nook and corner to paint.
Anything to pay special attention to?
If I had to do this all over again, I would probably get some new set of nails on hand just in case.
Also, I did not remove the slats from the dining table. I painted directly on the table.
