Iron chairs get a little makeover!

Sunday, November 6, 2011

We picked up two of these iron chairs
in over the summer. 
They aren't very old
and they lacked .....something?

Well, add a couple coats of
Paris Gray
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, some
freehand brush strokes,
plus a combination of her clear
and dark waxes to seal them....
and whaa-laa -- 
here they are now.

What do you think?

They will be going  
to the shop today for sale. 

Come by and take a look!

Blue Cardinal is open seven days a week. Stop by soon!

Happy Halloween!
