Before - This is just so not me. :) I'm not into the flowery look at all!

Before - I didnt think this was to bad but I wanted them to match. So it got painted too!

This was what 1 coat of paint looked like. I sprayed the chair down with water to keep the paint from absorbing to much. I used 2 cups of latex paint, 2 cups of Textile Medium (Hobby Lobby - dont forget your coupon!) and 2 cups of water mixed together very well. I did 2 coats and then went to work on painting the wood.

This is after 2 coats of Primer (Zinsser Bulls Eye 123). Next up it's time for the paint!

I added a coat of Minwax Polycrylic to seal it! What do you think?! I would love to hear your thoughts!

    I have a question. I love your chairs and you inspired me to do this to a chair I have. Since I changed my decor, I want to paint it a different color. Can you tell me if I'd have to do the whole process over again; paint, water, fabric medium? Or can I just use watered down paint or paint not watered down? My chair already has 3 coats of paint, water, fabric medium mixture. Any suggestions will be appreciated!
