Our French Inspired Chair project is moving right along and today Paul waxed and distressed the chair while I recovered and painted a grain sack stripe on the chair seat (tomorrow’s post).
Here are the steps we are working through on this project:
1.Apply a ‘chunky’ base coat of Greek Blue Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan
2.Apply a top coat of Paris Grey Chalk Paint®
3.Wax and Distress the Paris Grey to reveal the Greek Blue underneath
4.Reupholster the chair seat
5.Use Greek Blue Chalk Paint® to create a grain sack stripe on the chair seat
6.Sew a cover for a throw pillow and dye the fabric using Chalk Paint®
Paul applied clear wax to the entire chair, then using our new Annie Sloan sanding pads, he sanded the Paris Grey paint off the textured areas revealing the Greek Blue underneath. He then applied another light coat of clear wax. Besides being a really pretty look, this technique (wax-sand-wax) also creates a finish that is really beautiful to touch.
The chair is finished, now onto the seat!!
