When you find "the perfect" chair at the thrift store but you just don't have the time to completely reupholster it.
Yes, that's what I was thinking when I spotted this chair.
It was $15 and it was perfect.
Well, okay, maybe not perfect, but would you look at those lines?
I knew exactly where I wanted to put it and so it came home with me.
I did reupholster the sides and back with burlap...but I painted the rest of it. Yes, painted it! No sewing, no zippers, no pinning. Just me and my paintbrush, a can of paint, and of course the chair. She was begging me to paint her.
So of course, I obliged.
What do you think of her now?
She's lovely, I think.
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen for the frame and chair - Graphite for the stripes.
Clear wax on the whole chair and a bit of dark wax to bring out the wood details.
xo and God Bless!
