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.
