I thought these chairs had such a cute shape, but they really needed a little paint pick-me up.
When I started blogging all I did was paint furniture. I love painting furniture. The last year with working I haven’t had as much time, but I have really missed it. So, I’ve decided to try to get a few pieces a month into my little booth.
I did one with dark grey and light blue, and then I reversed the other chair and painted that one light blue with dark grey.
I actually use brown paint to age them; a technique I am going to to be talking about and showing you how to do in the Creatively Made Home e-course. It’s a super easy way to age furniture and easy to do.
I’ve been painting furniture for almost 14 years now and I actually prefer to not use paste wax, especially brown paste wax for many reasons. I know it’s hot right now; but I just think there are more disadvantages to advantages. I know you chalk paint lovers will hate me for that, but it’s just a personal preference.
I finish most of my pieces with a polyacrylic in matte or satin.
It’s a super-durable finish and holds up well with kids.
That, and a bit of sanding and acrylic paint just give it that extra bit of patina to take these old chairs from just old to worn and lovely.
