Anyways, after dropping my daughter off at school we snake thru the surrounding neighborhoods for treasure. I found this chair next to a saddle and old coffee table. Being short a horse, I left the saddle, and too many car-seats with diapered bottoms in them kept me from scooping up the coffee table. Chair it was.
Seat was a bit worn but the rest of the chair was protected by a thick layer of dust. lol
|oh look, my personality comes in a paint color|
Couple sloppy coats of homemade chalk paint in Moody Blue as seen here.
Then wiped on/wiped off with walnut stain. Pictured below: the forelegs have been stained but not the back legs. Stain adds a slightly green tint. Love how the stain highlights the grooves and nicks adding more charm.
Sealed with polycrylic.
The Final Result:

Now I just need to clear off my counter so I can enjoy my counter-height/breakfast-bar chair...or whatever it is called.
