Painted Chair - Update


Yesterday, I shared about painting this little school chair.  I had it all white then thought that it 'needed' something.  So I painted the seat and seatback in ASCP Florence.  Its a beautiful color, but I thought the contrast between Old White and the Florence was pretty stark.  You can read all about it here.




My sweet friend, and experienced ASCP painter confirmed how to go about lightening the seat and seat back and that is what I did.






I need to wax and sand it still but I like this much better.

I have two chairs still and I may try the Old White again, but do a color wash on the seat and seat back of lightened French Linen.

I'm having a good time with these projects.  I don't know if I'm good at it but, it's fun.

    I'm also learning! I didn't realize chalk paint would cover metal so well!
