Painted Rattan Refurbishing Project

Painted Rattan Project. Summer is almost here and everyone is thinking outdoor life, the beach, the lake etc. I was at the fabric store a while ago and I fell in love with this under the sea fabric. I'm a sucker for ocean and nautical so I had to buy it! I found this vintage rattan set and I loved the way the chairs looked and I thought the pair together would look great! I started by removing the cushions, sanding down the rattan. I mixed my " chalk paint" brew and I attacked it with it. I used Benjamin More for this project. I did two coats sanding between coats. I reupholstered the chairs. I did 3 coats of polyacrylic and voila! Beachy, breezy, beautiful rattan!
The glass is smoked.
This is how the chairs looked before.
