Get Party-Ready with these Flea Market Fab Folding Chairs

Folding chairs are essential if you like to entertain, but they are so UGLY. So we found a pair of basic wooden chairs at the flea market and made them fabulous with a bold stenciled paint job. Besides giving you more places to park booties, you’re instantly adding color and pattern to your setup, two of my essential elements for a stylish dinner party. Try painting each in different colors for a mix and match effect.


Stenciled Folding Chairs

  • You will need
  • flea/thrift chairs
  • high gloss interior/exterior paint

  • precut stencil
  • spray repositionable stencil adhesive
  • stencil pouncer brush


  • Paint chairs with desired color in as many light coats as required for a nice even finish. Let dry.
  • Spray the back of the stencil with stencil adhesive and place on chair seat. Using the pouncer, brush the contrasting paint color over the stencil. Repeat if necessary, then remove stencil and let dry.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
