Before & After

So if you read the blog you know that I had {and I suppose still do} have a chair fetish {along with a few other fetishes, doors, crates, vintage scales….I could keep going}.  the thing I LOVE about chairs is that you can usually get a good deal on them and make them into something fabulous!

Today’s before & after post is about a set of chairs I’ve been hoarding in my basement for a long time.  I finally busted them out and refreshed them.  Chairs can also be a bit time consuming if you are redoing the seat, etc. but when they are done you feel proud.

Here is the BEFORE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then the after….so I used Old White Chalk Paint™ by Annie Sloan. then distressed them and added a little gilding wax to give them just a little something special.

AFTER

 

You can see these on my Etsy Online Shop too.  Now it’s your turn!

    The chairs look great! But that fabric… I just got a 10 yard ‘remnant’ of it last week and spent the weekend making pillows. I knew I had seen it somewhere, it must have been your FB post last week. I love it and have lots of extra.
