Boring Chair, Farmhouse Flair and Mirror Before and After

blue farmhouse chair

Here is a fun post to share about a boring chair, farmhouse flair and a vintage mirror.

Let’s start with the boring chair.  I think we all have seen (or owned) these kitchen chairs in our lifetime.

My neighbor and client, Karen had a full set.  She was, understandably, tired of them.  She gave the chairs to charity but kept one to use for her desk and had me paint it.  We chose a deep blue – Annie Sloan Aubusson.

Easy and Simple – Paint Projects for the Winter Days

Persian Blue Table

I feel that lately I have been sharing very labor intensive projects with you all.  Projects that take a lot of time and effort to complete.  Today we are preparing for a huge snowstorm to hit later this afternoon in the DC area.  Record Breaking!  Historic!  Oh, my.  I won’t be out in my garage for at least a week and plan on working inside in my workroom.  I don’t sand in my workroom as my daughter has asthma and I can’t have the dust in our home.  There are smaller projects that are simple to do indoors.  Sometimes, the easy ones turn out the best!  Here are a few of my easy paint projects!

Vintage Chair in Creamy White + Quick Tip Video Tutorial

Remember the lovely vintage chairs I shared on Monday? I finished the first one and am sharing today. The paint is Annie Sloan Old White, followed by a wash of Annie Sloan Old Ochre (tutorial at bottom of post), followed by yet another light coat of Old White on parts of the chair. I distressed it back and added gold highlights before sealing it in Annie Sloan clear wax.  Remember they are being re-upholstered so I didn’t need to keep the fabric clean 🙂
