When we finished phase 1 of our office makeover (which I have yet to take photos of), I needed a desk chair. I was casually searching for one when a family at church said they were cleaning out, and would I like this chair?? Um, yes please!! It had been a project that was started and never finished, so it was even already sanded down for me! I love these old wooden office chairs. They have so much character.
I decided to do something a little different with this one, I used General Finishes Chalk Style paint. I use Milk Paint, about 90% of the time, and here's my full comparison of the two products. But sometimes it's fun to try something new. I hadn't used this color before, and I'm a sucker for navy - so I knew I'd like it.
I filmed the painting of this chair on a Facebook LIVE. By watching this, you can see how quick it goes on. AND it was already dry in most places by the time the video was over!!!
My favorite product to seal chalk paint is Flat out Flat. No more wax for me - I'm NOT a fan. Flat out Flat leaves a smooth finish that's still matte, but buttery smooth. And so much easier than applying and buffing wax!
Here's the chair at my desk. This is where I'm blogging right now! It's the perfect chair, just a touch of color that pairs well with my Antique White desk. This is no styled desk picture for you - just real life right here.
I did distress the edges just a bit, and you can see here the smoothness of the paint with the Flat out Flat on top of it.
Are you a fan of Milk Paint or Chalk Paint?? I'd love to know!!
