Well, the possibilities are endless.
I picked this armchair up this week at a Salvation Army Family Store and as I drove home my crazy little head was turning in what Big Daddy refers to as, ‘Project Mode’. He avoids me at all costs when I’m in Project Mode. Apparently it’s easy to spot. My eyes glaze over, I pin my ears back and fly around the house. It’s a whole big thing, according to him. I spent this ENTIRE weekend in Project Mode. And Big Daddy didn’t have to be subjected to any of it.
I was home alone.
Oh. What. Fun.
I did not stew at all about this one, in terms of color. I knew it had to be white.
This is the same custom color I used on that sideboard we dug out of the barn. I really love this color. It’s really a warm off white. I made it my mixing two Americana Decor chalk paints, Everlasting and Primitive. I played with the ratios for a while and finally settled on 5 parts Everlasting to 1 part Primitive.
It took two coats to cover this very dark wood. After a coat of clear wax I sanded the edges with a medium grit sand paper.
I really prefer to just take off the edges, especially on something as curvy as this chair.
It took me longer to decide on the fabric than the entire project. At first I narrowed it down to four choices out of my fabric stash (hoard). The one I chose I found on a remnant table at Old Time Pottery back in May while we were on vacation.
It’s a Ballards fabric, and it was $5.99 a yard! I grabbed it and ran to the check out.
$7 well spent , in my opinion!
I’ll share the other stuff I got in to this weekend a little later in the week.
Have a good week ahead,
