French Chair in Paris Grey – Themed Furniture Makeover


Vintage chair makeover with Chalk Paint and French fabric - by Girl in the Garage for Themed Furniture Makeover Day

Hello my lovely friends!  Today is Themed Furniture Makeover Day for me and a group of my talented blogging buddies.  Every month we have a different theme and each redo a piece of furniture based on that theme.  (See all my previous TFMD posts HERE.)  This month the theme is French.  <3

Here’s the chair I chose for this makeover:

To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to join this month since I’m 9 months prego and have this wonderful side effect called carpal tunnel syndrome.  I’ve had it in all 3 of my pregnancies, but thankfully it goes away pretty quickly afterward!

So I chose this chair because I knew it would be fairly simple and not cause too much pain for my fingers.  On the frame I used Paris Grey Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan, distressed it a little, and sealed it with clear wax.

I recovered the seat with chic French fabric from Hobby Lobby.

I think it looks pretty good next to my cherry blossom dresser which was also painted in Paris Grey (and I obviously still haven’t taken to my booth yet).  You can read about that dresser makeover HERE.

So pretty!  I really love how soft and ethereal this gray is.

    Pretty, Jen! I know it will sell quickly once you take it to your booth. It must be so hard to do anything creative while suffering from carpal tunnel.

    The chair compliments the cherry blossom chest perfectly! I’ve never seen that French fabric before and am totally crushing on it!
