Transforming a vintage chair for my desk

My office is in chaos since the remodel and I will have to get it organized soon.  In the meantime I needed a new comfy chair since the old one I had was pretty, but not good to sit in for very long.  
Before:
I found this vintage wooden chair at a yard sale about a week ago and it was in need of some paint, but comfy.  I pulled out a sample size of Robin's Egg Blue by Annie Sloane and painted the chair.  After two coats of blue, I distressed and sealed it with AS clear wax.  



I took photos before the wax was totally dry!
