This pretty little chair was sturdy, pretty and cheap. My favorite kind of chair. We returned from out antiquing trip and I immediately started taking this lady apart. I removed the old seat and batting. I made sure everything was tight and then I started painting.
Here is a little bit of a back story: A few weeks ago, my husband and I pulled out a telephone table that I was dying to work on. I had the color and fabric all ready to go. It seemed in good shape. It just needed some pinning. As my husband was pinning the leg, it completely shattered. The wood was so dry and brittle that is was beyond saving. I was devastated. I had searched for a telephone table. I guess that is what can happen when you are removing old furniture from someone's barn.
So anyway...I chose to do this chair is the same manner in which I was going to do the telephone table.
Here she is:
|I impressed myself with my upholstering skills. This kind isn't very hard though. :|
|Look how pretty she is with other Annie Sloan muted colors!|
I used Annie Sloan's Antibes and I LOVE IT! I paired it with fabric from Joanne's. This green is amazing paired with muted, soft patterns. I can't wait to do this again today with a different chair. Love!
Thanks for visiting.
