I am really enjoying the chair redo…
The chair on the left (brown) is a ‘before’. The chair on the right is one of my oak dining room chairs that I painted with Caromal textured basecoat Peppercorn -
… no clue when I’ll ever find time to complete the table… but HEY the chairs are done at least!
Here’s that brown chair again. I used Mustard Textured Basecoat on it, then sanded to distress, and here I am brushing on the Caromal Toner and then I’ll wipe it off
All done, and spoken for. See the black one behind it? That used to be brown too…
I repainted it using Reclaim Licorice basecoat, and did a Simple Blessings stencil on it in red and creme…
Now on to a couple pretties – I used Caromal textured basecoats – a little Colonial Blue mixed in with Parchment, and a little Putty mixed in with Parchment
I sanded to distress then applied Liberon Walnut wax to give it a soft brown glow as well as giving it a protective finish
When it dried I lightly wiped the chairs down for a soft sheen
I changed out the seats to burlap and added a stencil using Caromal’s basecoat Wisteria - a pretty pair!
And last, but not least (for now) I have the arm chairs that match
except on this one I used a faux fur on the seat - I am a sucker for the soft and fuzzy…
I’ll do the other arm chair to match, I like things in pairs!
