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!
