Sometimes you get lucky and you find a piece that's just beautiful. You can see all of it's personality and charm even through a dull, old brown finish. That was the case with Nichole.
Even when we could only see the beautiful lines on her back from a distance, we knew...we HAD to have that chair.
And those FEET! OMG! Just look at those FEET!
We painted her in Annie Sloan Graphite Chalk Paint. Yup, I know, we should be sick of it by now but the more we use this color, the more we want to paint with it! It's just such a beautiful, rich gray that can be completely changed if you want by using a white wash on top or in this case Briwax Liming Wax.
This wax is so cool! It completely softens a color without leaving streaky lines like some other techniques we use.
Here you can see the change in color because we didn't apply the wax to the ball under the claw.
Now...just look at those FEET!
And the wax lightened even the rush seat giving it much more contrast...and style!
Isn't she a Beauty?!
