Painted Leather Chair Makeover with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint


This is one of those projects that ends up taking much longer that you think it will.  A typical chair makeover will take a day or less to complete – a couple coats of paint, new fabric, and a protectant and you’re usually good to go.  (You can read my in-depth guide to doing a [...]
