I found this ratty, ugly chair on Craigslist. The seat cushions and wood were so filthy I could hardly stand to touch it! This was actually my very first purchase on craigslist and it almost made me think twice about ever buying anything else on there.
That's right, I was thinking, "I've made a huge mistake"! But, figuring I didn't have anything to lose, I tore it all apart, scrubbed it down with some TSP cleaner and set out to spiff her up.
I used two coats of Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Old White, distressed and waxed with clear wax and just a touch of dark wax. I used a tightly woven fine burlap and a dark brown trim. The Paris pillow I made using an iron on transfer I purchased from Graphique on Etsy and the faux grain sack pillow was made using a stencil I purchased from Maison De Stencils. This was one piece I didn't want to sell. But then again, I do say that about most of them. :)
