Annie Sloan Paint Does It Again!

Happy Friday everyone!

I have a BIG surprise for you!

I’m featuring Angela from Button Bird Designs!

You will be amazed at what she did to this chair.

What!?!?! You’re painting what?!?!

My girlfriend the Nester sent me a text asking if I wanted this chair, if not it was going to Goodwill.  My response was…”Is this a JOKE????”  Of course I wanted the chair!!!!  I immediately went to her house, put it in my car, and then drove directly home and put it in my sewing room.  I love this chair, I spend almost every morning around 5:00am-6:00am on it.  It’s my prayer, reading, meditation, and thankful chair.

I had big redo plans for the chair.  I might recover it with some funky fabric, or glue yo yo’s all over it, maybe a doily chair.  I just couldn’t decide, so I started with the legs and went from there.

I honestly don’t know if this was vinyl or leather but I accidentally got some paint on it.  Actually I think I did it on purpose to see if it would stick.  It did!!!  Have I mentioned how much I love Chalk Paint???

I called my husband over who was busy cutting some bushes.  “Guess what I am going to do!?!?! I am going to paint this chair!!!!!!!!!!!!!”    For twenty minutes he told me a thousand reasons why it wouldn’t work.  The one he was most fixated on was that as soon as I sat down, it would crack all over.  I looked at him and smiled reallllllllly big and said, “WELL LET’S JUST SEE”.  He walked away shaking his head.  Meanwhile, I had exactly 4 neighbors, 3 kids, and the mailman tell me it wouldn’t work.

Duck Egg Chalk Paint

A little sanding and glaze on the legs and then some wax over the paint…….

I have been using my chair every morning for over a week now.

No cracking.  Sooooo glad I went with my gut!!

Thank you Angela!

So what do you think?  It turned out amazing didn’t it?  Is there anything that Annie Sloan Chalk Paint can’t do???

If you haven’t visited Angela at Button Bird Designs you’re missing out! Her blog is amazing and she is a very talented lady.

Thank you Angela for sharing your chair with us today.
