Painted Settee With Chalk Paint

by Angela
I found this settee at a thrift shop for $38. The bones were good but it was tired looking and a little worn. I decided to try my hand at painting it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint!
Before and After!!!
$38 and good bones but the fabric was pretty worn and it needed a new life.
This is after the 1st coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Country Grey.
All done! I ended up using three coats of paint, spritzing with water while painting!
It's perfect for the bedroom!

    What kind of paint did you use and can I use a Berh primer and paint in a satin finish?

    Does it crack? I have a wingback chair that has tired upholstery, but bones are good. It is sat in frequently. My concern is that since it’s used heavily, the paint might crack.

    Is it still soft or does it a stiffness?

    Looks great! I am in the process of painting a small sectional/chaise lounge with AS. I am happy with it thus far. Did you use AS soft wax on yours to finish? I plan to post mine when finished.

      @Gail Yes, Gail...I did use the wax to finish. It softens it a bit! Please share with me when you're finished! I'd love to see!!
