I found a pair of beautiful, vintage chairs at a yard sale recently. The chairs looked like someone had tried to strip the paint off and they had a lot of texture.
Because the chairs had so much texture, I decided to layer on the Chalk Paint with a two-color distressed technique. I painted a Pure White base coat and I custom mixed the top coat with equal parts Pure White, Paris Gray, and Louis Blue to create a soft, powdery blue.
I love the simplicity of ticking stripes and I was happy to find pale blue, ticking stripe fabric at my local fabric shop.
The ticking stripes are the perfect complement to the rustic, Frenchy-blue finish of these chairs.
With the extra ticking stripe fabric and some cream colored burlap, I made this ruffled table runner.
