    Western Colors

    • Alternate western colors on a plain wooden chair. Young cowboys love blue, tan and brown, while little cowgirls will sit pretty on a pink and tan chair. Other western combinations include red and blue, red and brown with tan or blue and yellow.

      Create a sunset using a palate of reds, oranges and yellows on a child's chair. Complete this western look with a fine line drawing of a fence and horse. Trace an image from a coloring book if you do not feel confident in your drawing ability.

    Painting Effects

    • Several brands of paint are available that mimic the look of leather or create a crackle appearance for use on a child's western chair.

      Consider painting a cow pattern all over the chair, or paint just the back as an accent while leaving the rest of the chair a solid dark brown or white.

      Paint small wooden letters and stars, and glue them on the chair for a personalized effect. Add a painted rope or horseshoes to pull the look together. Wood shapes of all kinds are sold in craft stores that you can paint and attach with wood glue.

    Silhouettes

    • Paint a chair in a solid light color. Add silhouettes of horses, cowboys leaning on the chair leg or even rolling tumbleweeds or a campfire. Find images on a clip art program online, or check out a book from the library that has useful pictures you can make into stencils. Alternately, you can use cookie cutters. Paint the shadows of these western images on a chair, and add spatters of white or yellow paint for stars.
