Time Out Chair Tutorial

 Here is a photograph of a project I did recently.  I have seen many photographs of Time Out Chairs on the internet. I have also seen them advertised online but at ridiculous prices. I had a small red chair which wasn't being used and thought I would make my own Time Out Chair with a bit of personal creativity

 My Instructions:
  • Sanded down the chair with sandpaper.
  • Painted one layer of paint (I used some leftover blue paint)
  • Painted another layer (as dark red was hard to cover!)
  • I printed out some letters on my printer and glued them onto the backrest of the chair - spelling out 'TIME OUT'
  • I used a plate and used permanent pens (Sharpie Pens) to draw a clock shape onto the seat of the chair. I then hand drew the numbers of the clock and the wording 'Time Out'.
  • I then gave the chair a coat of varnish.

 My children love the 'Time Out' chair luckily it doesn't get used to much as my youngest is not particularly naughty so it is more of a novelty for her!
