Remember my "french" chair? I posted pictures when I found it at a thrift store
Last week I had time to paint it and re-do her seat
Painting on burlap is very hard, I wanted a different design, but I opted for this fleur de lis from The Graphics Fairy You can see clearly that the words aren't straight, it's because of the burlap moving up and down while I was painting.
I didn't make a cushion and left her back bare, I really like the caning and her silhouette.
The painting treatment was very simple, no Annie Sloan Chalk Paint here (can't find it locally)
I just used some white semi gloss paint, added some navy blue paint to make a light blue
Brushed some white paint here and there
After it dried, I gave her some good sanding
Applied a coat of Minwax walnut stain and let it dry a little before rubbing it off
I was surprised to see the difference the stain made, before I applied it, the paint was a very light blue.
I'm very happy with the results, even my husband liked it, I told him I would sell it to him for $50 lol! but he wanted to pay me $15, I told him that wasn't enough and I will keep my chair.
I have a little round table that I want to dress up for this chair, I will show it to you as soon as it's ready.
French word of today:
Burlap = Toile à sac
