I found these great ladder back chairs at the Flea Market and knew they had to come home with me.
The chairs are very sturdy and in fairly good shape except I didn't like the wood or the fact that the rush seats were looking dingy. I knew paint would take care of the dark wood issue, but what to do about the rush seats was my dilemma. I decided to try using dark wax on them.
I just used my brush and waxed the seats and they look new--another great use for dark wax!
I painted the wood in a custom soft blue/aqua and sealed them with dark wax. Painting chairs is NOT my favorite thing, but I love how they turned out.

|Usually I like to wet distress and not use rough sandpaper that leaves scratches, but by the time I got to distressing the chairs I was over them so I went with what was easy and fast!|
