I bought this cute, vintage chair and ornate frame from an estate sale recently.
The chair had a very dark stain and the seat was upholstered in black leather. It looked like it had never been used. Although it was in perfect condition, it still needed an updated look.
I chose the Duck Egg Blue chalk paint for a complete transformation. I love the little cutouts on the back of this chair and the shape of the legs. The Duck Egg Blue really brings out this chair's best features!
I went to the local fabric store and I could not find any fabric I liked with the Duck Egg Blue. I wanted the chair to be the focus, so I didn't want anything too bold or busy. Nancy suggested that I just use burlap. I was not sure at first, but after I got the whole chair put together I was convinced that was the right fabric choice and the chair sold the first day of our sale.
I love large oval frames and this one has beautiful detailing. It has chips and hairline cracks, but I think it adds to the chippy charm.
I painted it in Country Gray Chalk Paint with dark and clear waxes. I sanded it to allow some of the gold to show through.
This large, ornate frame would be perfect as a chalkboard, but it also looks great as it is.
This frame is for sale in my etsy shop!
