I found this beautiful Chair on the sidewalk sale by the Church where my Friend held Baby Shower. I passed the place by one half of the block…and there he was on the grass… God have his mysterious ways to lead me to these places LOL My Friends laughed at me that I bought my own comfy Tron to the party 🙂
My lovely daughter in law Paula fall in love with this chair but yellow and green flowers and pale cream fabric didn’t match her interiors..so I painted for her.
I used Annie Sloan custom mix of Paris Gray and French Linen on fabric sealed with clear wax. Wood was painted with same mix as a base coat, than dry brushed with Graphite, clear wax, little bit of white wax here and there. Distressed in places where should look worn. I applied Gold leaf on all carved parts and dry brushed with graphite and Paris Gray to give this OLD WORLD LOOK. Than I have waxed with clear wax, than distressed than apply Black Chiffon Glaze Couture on gilded carvings. After wiping excess I have apply Gold leaf again I few spots. I am pleased wit the outcome. Fabric is soft and have this delicate soft leather feel. Paula love her Chair 🙂
