I painted it with Annie Sloan's Old White color, and when I say that, I used all of my Annie Sloan paint, but I loved the color so I took it to Lowe's and had it color matched. This way I had the option of making my own chalk paint or going with latex which is way more economical from a seller's standpoint. This was painted with latex paint.
Below is the chair as I found it.
This was an older chair, not a reproduction from the 80's. The cane was so brittle that an ordinary kitchen knife sliced right through when I removed the old cane.
My husband cut a new seat out of a small piece of wood and glued it down on the old seat. Later I had him add a few nails with heads just for decorative purposes.
I do love this style chair when it's painted, but I prefer them to be sanded back to expose some of the details. This is perfect for a farm house decor.
Thanks for visiting.
