Painted Upholstered Chair {Annie Sloan Chalk Paint}

A little paint and a stencil ....and you have a completely different look! My other chair turned out so well I decided to do it again! This one will get tons of use (by me, every day in my office) I love it..and I did it on a dime!
The chair as it was when I brought it home with me. A little colonial for my decor! They had about 50 of them. From a hotel, most likely. (no surprise since I live close to Williamsburg ;) )
I painted it in a paled version of Duck Egg Blue.
Adding some white to the piping to make it pop! I love contrast.

    I have a chair that I got from my mother and it doesn't work with my decor and I want to change it but cant afford to have it redone........what I want to know is will it stand up to heavy use and not crumble or flake off??

    did you mix the chalk paint with anything else? was it stiff? how did you get the transfer on? you don't give any directions on how this was done.

    I painted 2 fabric cornice board valances I wasn't using anymore and gave them to my niece who moved into a new house. There are still up after 7 years and still look great. I also painted a bulky string wall covering instead of removing it because I liked the texture of it. That has been repaint 3 times because of color changes through the years. I still love it and get compliments too!

    You can use fabric medium, can be found with the craft paint at a craft store. It will help the paint stay elastic and won't crack during use......... nice chair Nancy, love the color.
