I was looking through my pictures and realized I have not shared a re-make I did of a cane back chair.
I found this chair at a local re-sale shop in really sad shape. Here it is before and excuse the mess in the background this my work area in my yard. I’m hoping soon to remodel my portable storage building as a shop. Can’t wait!
Sad huh? It was really nasty I couldn’t use the cushion yuck!
This was my first attempt at a faux grain sack. My lines are quite crooked (sigh, I can’t seem to draw a straight line) but I liked the look as I wanted it to look hand done not for everyone I know. I painted the chair with “Old White” ASCP then applied a wash of “Louis Blue” and waxed then distressed.
The “grain sack” (have you seen the prices for real ones?Whew) was painted with “Louis Blue” stripes and a graphic from the Graphics Fairy website. You know I could have Photoshopped some straight lines but I’m not trying to be perfect on here I’m trying to encourage you and let you know hey it doesn’t have to be perfect your first time just go for it!
The chair is now at my booth in King’s Antiques, Shreveport, Louisiana in all its imperfect glory and hey I’m having a 20% off sale right now so you’ll get a really great buy!
Hope you enjoyed this before and after and OMGosh you haven't forgotten to enter to win the $50 Wal Mart gift card I’m giving away have you?! Quick go here to enter.
