So on Saturday I left y'all hanging with the before and during of my most recent vintage chair find.
After working on it on and off for a couple of days it is finished.
I was going for a pretty gray by mixing Annie Sloan chalk paint in Graphite with the Mineral Fusion paint in Raw Silk which is a creamy white. The color turned out to be a pretty French gray blue.
I'm glad I painted the chair in the white paint first since it added a nice layer when distressing.
I applied two coats of the blue gray color and after it dried I started sanding the chair to distress it. I don't want an old chair to look brand new.
I applied antique gold Rub'n Buff on this part and then sanded it. I also mixed dark wax and hemp oil wax together and applied it all over the chair.
The legs got a bit of distressed glitz and I will share how and my special tools soon.
I wasn't sure where I was going to use this chair and I tried it in the master bedroom first. It was alright in there, but I decided to try it in the foyer so I switched the chairs and put the chair that was in the foyer in the master.
I love getting my creativity on painting a piece like this.
How about you?
Have an awesome week!
