Dog Themed Child’s Chair


A painted dog and a seat covered with paw prints makes this child's chair charming.

Another month has rolled by and once again it is time for Themed Furniture Makeover Day.  The theme this month is animal and I found the cutest child’s chair to makeover using a canine theme.

I was so excited to give this chair a makeover that I forgot to take a “before” picture of it.  It was actually perfectly fine in it’s “before” state, I just knew that with paint I could give the plain wood some personality.

I painted the chair with several coats of Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting, lightly distressed it, and finally waxed it with  Americana Decor Cream Wax.

Does the dog that I added to the chair back look familiar?  I printed out a picture of the sign that I recently made for my classroom door, cut it out, and traced it on the chair.  If you saw my sign post then you know that the dog is Sherman and the artwork is by Mr. SP.   I added a bandana to the dog’s neck for a pop of color.

A painted dog adds charm to this child's chair.


Doggie paw prints across the seat are a canine finishing touch.

Painted paw prints on this child's chair are so cute!


Sherman was a good sport and posed for a picture with the chair.  Since I have no canine loving little person to give this to, this chair is for sale at my shop.

Sherman Skulina gives his doggie approval to this adorable dog themed child's chair.


Do you want to know a secret?  I took this chair to school and kept it in my classroom for a few days before I took it to my shop so that I could enjoy it.  🙂


I would love it if you would pin this chair to Pinterest for others to discover!

This child's chair painted with a dog theme is charming!

  1. This is so adorable! I love that you brought it to school to enjoy it. I bet the kids had so much fun seeing it too…even if they probably can’t fit in it anymore! I think it’s so neat that it is Mr. SP’s artwork! Makes it that much better!
