I saw this chair at the Flea Market and had to have it! The cane on the seat was all in tack and I loved the details on the legs. The chair needed some work, but I was in love so it came home with me.
Here is the before:
I mixed up a home-made golden-yellow chalk paint and painted away. I distressed the chair and applied AS dark wax. After looking at it I decided it needed a little bit more of something, so I pulled out my Rub n Buff in gold and applied some with an art brush. The gold really blends in because of the base color and dark wax. It looks old and aged just like I like it!
