BEST BRUSHES FOR CHALK PAINT, MINERAL OR CLAY BASED PAINTS One of the biggest mistakes people make when painting with Chalk Paint , Minera...


Like they say, one man's trash is another's treasure and I found this Mid Century Modern chair on the side of the road last week with a pile of more "junk". It was in great condition for a makeover. Tan leather, wood legs that though worn, were sturdy. So, of course, off to my house she came!

The minute I saw it, I knew it was perfect for another Chalkpaint Chair makeover, just for myself this time!

My style at home is a combination I call french chic and my colors are mostly neutrals, so I chose to paint it with Annie Sloan Paris Gray and later decided to add the stencil in Graphite, painting the legs to match.

Since it was already leather, it was an easy, no brainer with Chalkpaint! No need to water down the paint as it doesn't soak into leather like it does fabric. So all I had to do was grab my favorite brush and go! I then sealed with clear wax for wear and she was added to my living room.

Being a mid-century modern piece, it's the low profile lounge type chair, which my grandbaby says is just her size. So, she insisted it go beside her toyboy (Which is a vintage shoemaker's crate I found years ago and fell in love with).

A usual, changing one thing in my living room, prompts me to do I have another chalkpaint chair makeover - a 70's shaggy velvet style fabric that I've been planning to paint and this gave me the motivation to hop to it! Coming soon so stay tuned!

Here you can see from beginning to end! I love how it turned out...just my style!
