I've been playing around with paint and fabric this week; Having lots of fun!
Yesterday Felicity and I decided to redo this old chair.
We sanded and sanded and sanded some more. This chair had what seemed like an inch thick of glossy lacquer finish on it.
After sanding and cleaning we "dry brushed" on some white paint that I had leftover from the kitchen cabinets.
I just put a tiny amount of paint on the tip of the paint brush (usually by just tapping the brush on the lid) then gently and quickly swept the brush back and forth across the wood until I had the amount of paint I wanted.
We also recovered the seat in this gorgeous toned down turquoise fabric from Hobby Lobby.
I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Now I just have to find a place for it!
UPDATE: Decided the chair needed a little something else, so right after posting this I went back and added some black Valspar glaze to the lines of the flower.... it brings it out much better now:

Oh, and before I go I must share a picture of Felicity all decked out in her red, white and blue for Independence Day.
She wasn't sure what to think about the parade, she didn't really start to get into it until the very end.
