This old chair was dark and tired and screamed for a makeover.
So, I gave it a couple coats of pure white paint.
Then, added some freehand flowers in pinks, mauves, and lavender.
Add green leaves and a curl or two.
Let a blue ribbon wind and twine among the flowers.
A little distressing and a little antiquing with stain to bring out the detail......
Then, after the stain has had time to dry, brush on two coats of water base varnish.
And, wha la, finished, all bright and cherry.....a pretty place to sit upon or just sit a plant upon.
What cha think?
