Over a year ago...ahem...I scored some Louie chairs at a neighborhood garage sale. (Cue Beverly Hillbillies music!)
My old chairs were rickety and falling apart:
I was chomping at the bit to try out Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! The folks at Annie Sloan Unfolded were amazing and so
patient helpful. I was waffling between "Paris Grey" and "French Linen" and their paint expert, Lisa helped me decide on "Paris Grey!"
Here is the best part about this paint- NO prepping, NO priming and only ONE COAT!
Even though I love linen, it was not a wise choice for my large, messy brood. I went with $10 drop cloths from Lowes!
As most of my projects go, it takes a village to finish them! I took care of the painting and a gal pal with sewing skill whipped up the cushions and the backs of the chairs.
At the same yard sale, I scored this fabric. I am a big ole color chicken but thought I could handle this splash of color on the back of two chairs.
Taking bets- Which child will be the first to spill ketchup, wipe bbq sauce (or worse!) or write their name with sharpie on our "new" chairs?
