Lori's Arm Chair Makeover

While I'm STILL finishing up Jay's kitchen,
I thought I'd quickly post this chair makeover I just completed Sunday.
 My client, Lori, wanted me to "fun up" this ho hum chair.

 The undressing begins......
I'm painting the frame in a homemade chalk paint 
I made using Benjamin Moore "Pale Oak."

After it dried, I waxed and buffed.
 I lightly distressed the edges and added dark wax in all the grooves to age.
Then I beefed up everything with fresh batting,
and the reupholstery begins.
I'm using this cream and blue striped ticking
I purchased on Decor Steals.
 For the back, 
I'm using a remnant of this batik style fabric I purchased from UFab.
Final details: Dust cover, gimp....
And it's all done.
I added nailheads to secure the edges.
I made a little pillow with more remnants...
Side 1
Side 2.

Thank you Lori!
