Before and After: Milk White Weathered Farm Chair
Hey friends! Remember how excited I was about the nice weather on Saturday? Well Sunday was the complete opposite - I'm talking steady rain and plops of snowy sleet all day long. What's a girl to do? Paint furniture of course...
I have four amazing 100-year old antique pressed back chairs that I've been waiting for inspiration on. So I decided to tackle on on Sunday. Of course, in my haste I forgot to take my before pic AGAIN! I know, this is turning into a bad habit with me. Hopefully the 'after' shot makes up for it!
Isn't she lovely? I'm so happy with how she turned out, all creamy and chippy and weathered and fantastic! I used the most gorgeous vintage-y white colour called 'Crisp Linen' by CIL and I think it's going to be my go-to white from now on. I love the touch of yellow undertone that gives it such a rich depth. I heavily sanded the chair after painting, to make it look aged and well-loved, then sealed it with two coats of water-based polyurethane for durability and a nice sheen.
I think it would be just fabulous as a bedside table in a romantic bedroom...where would you put it?
If you live in the Winnipeg area and would love to take the Milk White Weathered Farm Chair home, you can purchase it here. If have an old piece of wood furniture laying around that you'd like refreshed, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can chat!
Have a great evening friends!
