Today’s chair makeover is simple but classy.
I forgot to take a “proper” before photo – this is the one my mom snapped on her cell when she saw it at a yard sale. 😉
I had some leftover fabric picked out for the seat, but realized too late that the piece wasn’t big enough. So I searched high and low through my stash and just wasn’t happy with anything I had. Then it hit me – since the back of this chair is so unique, it doesn’t need a busy print to compete with.
I painted the chair with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Graphite, waxed with Annie Sloan’s dark wax, and then decided on a simple painter’s drop cloth to recover the seat. But it was a little too simple – so I added a small PARIS stencil from Royal Design Studio on the lower corner.
I’m really pleased with it!
Yes the back looks like a spider web – but it also reminds me of Notre Dame in Paris for some reason…
This lovely piece will be available for purchase soon.
Over the next several weeks, my friends and I will each be featuring each other on our blogs. Here are this week’s featured blogs:
