Ten Projects, Day Five – Revised Cowhide Chairs – MOOOOO!

This projects relates to a few pieces I painted in the post – an Oak Thomasville Dining Set.

The pieces?   Chairs.   Original finish – Golden Oak.   Then, several years ago, I painted them with Caromal Textured Basecoat Peppercorn – simple distressed black.

When I brought the set to the store to sell, the idea was to use a neutral white – I went with APC’s Navajo White.    We painted several of the chairs white, and I painted the fabric seats as  well, using  APC Lincoln’s Hat mixed with APC Wild Horses.  When the seats dried,  I stenciled each pad with an accompanying number.

In the mean time,  I was working on the table finish, and I loved where it was going but I didnt like the chairs with the table – the white was too stark, so we re-painted them with a mix of American Paint Lincoln’s Hat and the APC wild Horses.  When it dried , I sanded and sealed with APC Topcoat mixed with Copper Mica

I had them in the showroom, around the dining table, but they were boring, and I didn’t like how they felt with the table…

I took one of the chairs back to the workroom and went to town with my power mouse sander, giving the chair a really good buzz…  after that I took APC’s Vintage Dark Wax, cut it with some of their Clear Wax, and gave each chair a light wiping to add an antiquing to the white.

Remember, the chairs HAD  been previously Topcoated, so they had a harder, more durable coating to begin with.  The purposed of the wax was to easily add that glazed/aged effect, and it offered the finish back an even sheen –

NOW I LOVE THEM!

They flow with the table finish much better, which is more rustic –caromal colours, american paint company, cow hide paint rustic paint finish, painted fabric, shop.fabfinisher.com  fabulous finishes, metro detroit, coupon code PattyH

I call them my cow chairs because they remind me of cowhide.  I love the finish with the seat pad too –
