Welcome to Our Crafty Mom! Today I am sharing a refinished chair with Americana Chalk Paint. If you’ve visited Our Crafty Mom before, you know I love a trash to treasure project! I used a beautiful white color called Everlasting. It is one of my favorites, as it is so versatile. I have used it many times before! I was lucky enough to get this gorgeous chair for free from my Sister. It just needed a little love!

I wanted to give the chair a French Country look, so I used a classic blue ticking cotton duck fabric to reupholster the seat. You will see in the before photo that the fabric was in desperate need of an update! I gave the chair two coats of chalk paint, then finished it off with Americana Deep Brown Wax. I used a small amount of wax-wiping it on with an old rag-then wiping it off until I had the shade I liked. It’s amazing how much more noticeable the gorgeous rosette is now! I lightly distressed the edges with a fine grit sandpaper to give it an aged look.
Refinished Chair With Americana Chalk Paint
You really appreciate the transformation in this before and after picture:
I know I say it a lot, but I’ll say it again-the power of paint! This chair is now given a new lease on life! It has the French Country feel I was going for, but is neutral enough to fit into any decor style. I may use this as a vanity chair in my bedroom! I am so happy with how this refinished chair turned out & look forward to my next update! I have another chair that my Sister also gave me and plan something completely different planned. Come back next week to see the reveal!
