Chair up-do using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
This chair is OLD.
It has many layers of paint from it’s loving
owners over the years.
The paint is chippy and crackled from age.
There were quite a few fabrics on the seat.
Best news ever? It was painted a Gorgeous Turquoise Color
that made me feel Dreamy and Lucky!
I knew when I opened the can of Versailles paint that the light
greenish color would be a perfect pairing for this chair.
I painted precision and planned brushstrokes,
then wiped some off, then sanded a bit.
The most wonderful effect was achieved by sanding
some of the chippy areas…
The paint came through in layers
revealing a bright white edge in the wood and colors.
I am SO proud of how this chair looks.
The most fun was using a this edge tool to flake off the
chippy paint to get the most beautiful distressed look
from this authentic piece!
I covered the chair seat with a near white colored canvas.
