They sold.  So I started these little chairs, originally honey oak-  this one is American Paint Company Voyage blue

still need to clean them up and seal them with American’s Topcoat Finish.  Probably will jazz them up a little as well 🙂

This past week, more chairs sold –   American Paint’s Waistcoat green, an Ellis Collection color (love it) with APC Vintage Dark Wax-

Needed to replenish our painted chair offerings, so I grabbed a number from the ‘to be painted pile’ …..    This chair was the perfect match for a piece I’d painted awhile back –  It’s nice to be able to show vanity/desk style pieces WITH an accompanying chair.  I used Smoke Signal, some Plymouth Rock

and sealed it with Vintage Clear Wax mixed with Pewter Mica –  all American Paint products. american paint, chalk, clay, mineral, paint, no sanding, no stripping, no priming, painted furniture, vintage, wax, paint workshops, buy paint, shop.fabfinisher.com, fabulous finishes, metro detroit, caromal colours

The seat was a mix of Wild Horses with metallic silver stenciling-

This chair fit perfectly under this desk – one of my favorite pieces that I finished with an old color line of paints –  I painted the chair to match,  using a mix of Beach Glass and Lincoln’s Hat,  washing a little Parchment and Leather Boots over top.

This chair worked nicely with this desk I just completed (that start to finish post is tomorrow) .  An older, solid chair,  the wood grain was lovely AND in really nice condition – we cleaned it up, and brought it back to life with a coat of APC Vintage Dark Wax.  The seatt was painted APC Born on the Forth of July to tie in with the desk

then the light pale Spacious Skies over top.   Sanded back and sealed with Vintage Clear Wax,  and new seat covers

Lighter, subtle hints of color are hard to capture on photo – this light, pale Spacious Skies is one of those colors.    In a room on it’s own this chair would appear vintage white –

but it’s not just white.
