Here's an old chair I picked up at the Oakland Museum White Elephant Sale. I decided to use it as a "demo" chair, to show what can be done with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®, so only painted half. Some of you might think this is a cool new style - if so, I can help!
Do you want to change the color of your chair cushions, but don't want to re-upholster them? Guess what - you can paint them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint®! Seriously!
I took the chair cushion off this chair, taped it in half, painted the fabric (2 coats of Old White) and applied clear wax and buffed it. Viola - it feels like pleather, and looks fantastic! And it took less than 10 minutes to do. E.Z.
The wooden part of the chair was quick and easy too. I just brushed on 1.5 coats of Graphite, let it dry, then just for fun waxed it with a tiny bit of Old White mixed into the clear wax. Wiped off the excess and buffed it, and gave the chair a whole new look!
