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’s one of my favorites, because it’s so versatile.
I’ve 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.
