Can I tell you a secret? I’m not really a fan of the term “shabby chic.” I’m not exactly sure why, but I usually prefer “vintage,” “romantic,” or any other similar descriptive words. But honestly when this chair makeover was finished it just screamed “shabby chic chair” to me. It’s so pretty and girly and vintage and romantic and shabby chic!
Here’s the before:
The chair has a little bit of history having been made a few hours south of me in Tell City, Indiana.
I gave it one of my favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® colors – Old Ochre, did some light distressing, and applied a coat of clear wax. Then I found the perfect vintage-looking fabric at Hobby Lobby and recovered the seat. (Click HERE for all of my step-by-step tips for doing a chair makeover.)
And here she is all finished! So lovely.
So shabby chic! 😉
