The only sure fire way to get myself out of a funk.
is to create something...
it always works.
I started with this antique balloon back chair which I have always loved,
however, it has been in the Shoppe forever with seemingly no interest.
Could be the dark wood or the worn snagged needlepoint,
but I knew it needed a new life.
I removed the antique needlepoint which will be used for another project
And applied a coat of Ace flat wall paint in this luscious Tiffany blue,
then distressed with steel wool to knock off a substantial amount of the
.paint I had just applied.
The next step was a good coat of Briwax in their darkest color.
I find that if I refrigerate my wax before using,
I am able to apply a much thinner coat and
don't have to remove as much.
I'm careful to use a small paint brush to get into all the crevices.
assuring the paint looks like it has been there forever.
Check back tomorrow to see what kind of upholstery.
I used on the seat......
I'm excited to get it finished
Ready for the September 24th Le' Pre'miere
