Twice Made Over Chair

DSC_3878

I have had this chair for quite some time.  I loved its bones and the detail work on it.  It also had a rich brown color to it so I knew I wanted to pull that back through the paint.

While I was working another piece with Maison Blanche in Hurricane I decided to go ahead and brush some on over the white.  It only needed one coat since I knew I was going to distress it.  After distressing with a medium grit sanding block, I decided to add some dark wax to richen the colors a bit.

This chair does have a sister.  I just need to decide if I am going to paint it the same way and make these a pair or if I should do something different with the other.  Time will tell.  This chair is still currently available at Consign to Design.  Come check it out.  Thanks for looking!
