Creating Fun Whimsical Finishes… Black and Creme Checkers and Gold Leaf On A Chair….

This chair started as a simple chair.   All wood…   kindof  boxy… Alice and Wonderland,maybe?

I based the whole chair in Caromal Reclaim Mocha thinking I’d gild the whole thing, but after the base was on I changed my mind.   Too casual a frame to pull off a classic she-she gilded finish, so what now?

I started to paint stripes on the rails, using CeCe Sedona and  CeCe Smoky Mountain Gray…  and instead gilded/gold leaf’d  the legs…

 I used a stencil to checker the seat, with Caromal Reclaim Offwhite and Licorice, and introduced CeCe SpringHill Green to paint the stretchers…

I added a stencil using CeCe Carolina Sun Yellow…

Fun!

Think outside the box –  it’s so worth it…. you never know what you’ll get…   If you don’t like it?   Simply paint over it.
