We painted the outdated upholstery on these antique chairs with a mixture of 50% Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and 50% water. We misted the fabric with a spray bottle of water
with each coat of paint so that the fabric would absorb the paint and not be stiff. It took three coats of paint, with about 24 hours of drying time between each coat. We stenciled a french design on each chair using Annie Sloan Graphite. The blue stripe was stenciled with Aubusson Blue. We then distressed and glazed the arms and legs.

Even though I work for a home improvement website, I am an idiot who just overloaded her dryer. It stopped. My old (I have no idea what year, but it is old) Whirlpool gas dryer stopped mid-cycle, and won't start again. What do I do? Can (how?) can I fix it myself? Should I call a repairman?
