After doing some errands today I stopped by one of the local Goodwill stores and found a pair of great chairs. Well--they did not look pretty, but I really liked the shape and the bones so they had to come home with me.
Lovely yellow seats!
I have a few antique European grain sacks and wanted to use the fabric on the chairs. I painted the chairs with my home-made chalk paint (Milky Way by Benjamin Moore) and then distressed them. To make the chairs more of a creamy color and add some dimension I painted them with my hemp oil/dark wax mix. They came out the color I was picturing in my head. I cut up a grain sack and stapled away.
I love the Red!

I might have to keep these and get rid of a pair of my current dinning chairs!thebrambleberrycottage
