Just to remind you, here is what the chairs looked like before.
boyfriend. You know, the one that omits the sanding step. Love him!
Caribe by BEHR from Home Depot and a new fav of mine. Props go to Kathleen for picking the color too!
Kathleen sanded a few key areas for that distressed look. These are the chairs that my children will be sitting in and using their own "distressing" techniques so I didn't want them to look too perfect.
To get the antiqued, aged look she used Annie Sloan's dark wax. It is so cool! It's the consistency of butter and you can just brush it on. Not only does it give it a great look but it seals it too.
I love, love, love them and I'm more than pleased with how they turned out. I even let my children sit on them! The best part is that it inspired me to
finish start the other refurbishing projects that I have piling up in the garage!
Have a great day and thanks for checking in!
