Project: Chalk Painted Chair
I've been playing with paint lately...latex in the girls room, Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint, and Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
The Milk Paint and the Chalk Paint are new to me. They are very different from one another, but it's been fun to try new things.
Today I want to show you the chair I painted with the Chalk Paint, even though I have not waxed it at all yet.
This is a sweet chair I got right after Tim and I were married. It was painted a country blue color and was used when we got it.
For some reason, my Mom ended up with it and had painted it white then a green color treatment over the white. We ended up with the chair again, and while I love the chair, the paint treatment was very outdated.
Here is the chair with one coat of the chalk paint...
And here it is with two coats. Like I said I have to wax it still, and I think that will add depth to the finish.
I am in LOVE with the English Yellow color but used a sample size of the pure white on the chair because the store I buy my paint from was out of the sample size in English Yellow! Now that I know how the paint is and that I like it, I will probably buy the quart of paint in Yellow.
Many people who use the milk paint and the chalk paint do distressing too. Not sure that I want to do that on this piece - my husband is not overly fond of that look.
I just thought about the fact that since I haven't put the wax on yet, I could paint this chair yellow! That would be fun!
What do you think? White or Yellow?
Here is an image from google that shows a chair in the yellow paint.
I am thinking yellow!
