Paint & Fabric for Chairs

Here's a lovely re-do of a vintage chair using Chalk Paint.

The Chalk Paint® used here is Paris Grey - a favorite around Brocante Home! 

The "aging" of the wood can be accomplished by using Annie Sloan Soft Dark Wax. Try using a glaze of equal parts of Dark Wax and No-odor Mineral Spirits. Don't know how to do this? We teach this method in our Workshop in Irvington. CLICK HERE for the schedule of the next Workshop.

Did you know that we also sell fabric by the yard at Brocante Home? So, if you are looking to re-upholster a chair or other items, we can help. Below are samples of fabric we carry that is similar to the one used above.

We carry over 100 different fabrics, I'm sure one is just right for your project.

Happy Painting!
