Graphite Chalk Paint Chair Makeover {Client Project}

Hi friends- I thought I’d give you all a break from the Christmas projects today.

I got an email a couple weeks ago from a local lady who wanted to give her teenage daughter a chair for Christmas.  (Does that technically make this a “Christmas project?”  Okay, maybe…)

She wanted something black and French themed – just my style!   😉

Since I had already depleted my huge stash of chairs, I searched high and low and thankfully found this perfect candidate for a chair makeover:

Not the greatest pic, but you get the idea – very very brown.

I removed the seat and painted all the wood in Graphite Chalk Paint, followed by Annie Sloan’s dark wax.

I used some leftover French fabric from this chair makeover and recovered the seat.

Done and done.

I hope my client’s daughter loves her new chair!

I love the floral detail on the legs and the back of the chair.  <3

Have you had time for any furniture makeovers lately?

I’m working on one more, and hoping to have it finished before 2015 – fingers crossed!

    Just purchased my first can of Annie Sloan’s chalk paint. Can’t wait to makeover an old cedar chest I’ve had in the basement for 25 years. Inspired by your website.
