Grey Chest on Chest

Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

I don’t have a before photo of this one.  It was painted high gloss black when I got it.  I sanded the entire piece with rough grit sandpaper and wiped off the dust with a damp cloth. I gave the chest 2 coats of gray paint.  I then painted the details black and added a metallic wash to them.  I put on a light coat of black glaze all over the gray areas and a coat of polyacrylic on the entire piece. There you have it!  A gorgeous finish!


The Ugly Before

Before Paisley Ikat Dining Chair

Finished Project

I’m in my mid 40’s, mom to one grown daughter, Katelyn, and a grandson, Dawson. He is the light of my life!! I am with the man of my dreams and he spoils me, as well as helping along with the furniture when I need help moving things in and out. My other hobbies include photography, scrap booking, reading and of course, decorating my home! My days find me in the office, painting furniture, decorating my home and when I’m lucky, shopping!
I hope you’ll follow along with me on this journey called home.
