Which one of these chairs would you choose for your home? It always amazes me how a little paint will change the looks of a piece of furniture. I never pass up the opportunity to buy a piece of furniture with old paint, but......sometimes old paint can be hard to find.
I have been painting furniture for more than 25 years, long before Rachel Ashwell made Shabby Chic popular. When we started doing shows 13 years ago in Atlanta that is all we sold. But after about while, I grew very tired of painting everything in sight! hahaha!
But guess what? Since I've had the shop, it seems people want painted furniture and I'm gonna give it to them. A girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!
I've had these chairs for a long time and I intended to recover them. But lately I've seen several blogs that show painting the fabric right along with the wood. Figured I'd try my hand at this. Well.......it is easy as pie! And it is truly amazing how good the fabric looks painted. I have 4 of these chairs and I think they look great! These babies will go to the shop Thursday.
Want to remind you of the Vintage Marketplace!
