I wrote about thrifting with my sister awhile back where I found a $5 chair and a $1 chair.
I made my own chalk paint using a recipe from Iheartnaptime,
I mixed two colors in order to make this smoky gray, and it worked out perfectly. I really liked using the chalk paint, and am still debating whether to continue to make my own or try some of the Annie Sloan paint.
Like I said, I only paid $5 for this lovely cane chair.
I love the little details!
Chalk paint, as I am sure you know, is used on furniture to prevent you from having to sand. This paint attached itself beautifully to the chair.
I did put a little bit of the vaseline before painting so that I could distress easier.
Even though there is a little damage on the back, their was nothing a little paint and a pillow could do.
It found a place in the corner of my living room ...
The other chair is one that I adore ...
I recovered it with a coffee sack that I had.
I didn't really want to distress this one as much.
And yes, both chairs are safe to sit in, regardless of what Ken says.
