After a fun and relaxing vacation with friends, I’m excited to be home and to get started on some new projects I have plans for.
My first task was to finish this farmhouse chair I started a few weeks ago. It is an old farmhouse style chair I picked up a few years ago at an Antique Store. I had originally planned on painting the whole chair one color but after sanding it down I quickly changed my mind. I really loved the details and the character in the seat so I decided to try a little experiment and stain the seat of the chair and paint the rest.
On the seat of the chair I used Minwax Stain in Dark Walnut and wipe on poly to seal it.
For the paint I used my old favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint but tried a new color for this one. The name of the color is Versailles and it’s a really pretty light green.
When the paint dried I used a layer of Annie Sloan Clear Wax followed by a light layer of Annie Sloan Dark Wax to accent the details.
Thanks for looking!!
