I took a look in the garage the other day, and realized I should probably get going on a few chair projects. I currently have 14 arm chairs and approximately 9 stools and benches piled up. Today I finished this frenchy chair.
A little too dark and heavy, and I was not feeling the fabric at all. However, it was only $10.00.
Starting with a white primer, I drybrushed multiple layers of GESSO in white, grey, and my custom mix
My final layer was a light brush of white. I honestly don't remember how many layers I applied. I recovered the seat in a nubby fabric, followed by a striped linen towel down the center. I purchased a basket full of these towels at an auction earlier in the year, and I think this one works perfectly with this chair.
More candidates await, including a line of stools and benches. Not sure about painting this chair.
I may just change the fabric. I kinda like the wood. Hmmmmm....., what do you think?
