Hi everyone, something different to share with you today. I have wanted a chair in my bedroom for ages and I have been looking round the charity shops but they always seem to be in sets of 4. The other Saturday when I went into King's Lynn I went in the Heart Foundation shop which have a great selection of second hand furniture and saw this chair all by it's self for sale for £10. At that price I had to buy it as I thought it was a real bargain!
When I got it home I decided to paint it the same afternoon and put on 2 coats of Annie Sloan paint in paris grey. Annie Sloan paint is great as you don't need to do any rubbing down or add a primer you just paint straight onto the wood. It will go over varnish and it even works well on laminate furniture too. I finished off with 1 coat of Annie Sloan clear wax which you must use to stop it chipping and it was all done in just 1 afternoon.
Well I say all done, when I was in town I also spotted some gorgeous fabric in the fabric shop which was just the right colours for my bedroom so on Sunday morning I whizzed up a cushion cover.
This is my finished chair all in place in my bedroom.
Thanks to everyone that has been leaving me comments, they are really appreciated. I'm sorry I have not been very good at returning comments at the moment but I have been sorting out sponorship for the Winter Wonderland Challenge so this is taking up my blogging time in the evening.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
