Hi there, today I thought I would share a few more of the items that I have been working on.
Here is the story on these cute mid-century chairs. It was so crazy, I had gone to the resale shop on a Monday and picked up one of these great chairs. Loved it! Right away I painted it with Annie Sloan Country Grey, waxed it with Dark Briwax and covered it in a neutral beige colored heavy weight linen.
I dropped by the resale shop again on Thursday and found the sister to this chair! I could not believe it, so exciting! I hope it is obvious which chair I had already finished :)
Do you see the little wheels on the front legs? One of the many things I collect are vintage wheels….I happen to have 4 wheels that are a perfect fit. I think these chairs are so cute!
Here is another chair that I just finished up. I didn’t get a shot of the chair before I started working on it. I am trying to do better is this area. This next shot is after I had painted the entire chair in Annie Sloan Paris Grey and covered the seat in gray canvas.
And one more before and after.
I sanded off all the crackle finish, painted with Annie Sloan Chateau Grey Chalk Paint, then finished the frame with a dark wax. I then upholstered the seat and back in a heavy flax linen in a natural color and then changed it up with a different coordinating flax linen upholstery fabric on the back.
