I love mismatched chairs in a kitchen/dining room and have so far only accumulated two stools worthy for our bench. They are hard to come by…plus I’m fussy 🙂 Chairs for our table, on the other hand, are another story…I could seat 23 people around a table at our place at the moment!!
What is it with us girls and chairs?!
I know I’m not the only one who loves a chair or two 😉
Anyway, back to the chair of the moment – here’s the before:
A gorgeous worn orange look that I couldn’t wait to get rid of and an almost black was the color I needed.
I’m loving a hint of black in a room at the moment!
This color is called Klavier by Dulux and is deep, rich charcoal…or black to the untrained eye 🙂
That lovely sheen is courtesy of beeswax – my go-to sealer – which is the perfect product to go over DIY chalk paint in my humble opinion. Oh and you can read all about chalk paint and the recipe I use right here.
I distressed it with my mouse sander, concentrating where the chair would naturally wear first.
And when I get a hold of a decent camera – all my pics are iPhone – I will take some kitchen shots and a bit of a house tour. I know I’ve promised it to you and it is happening!! I haven’t forgotten 🙂
So that’s my little before and after for today…hope you like it and have a wonderful weekend!!
