Remember last week’s Fabulous Friday, the French Arm Chair? As promised, here is the transformation!!
The chairs belong to a dear friend. They were passed down to her from her grandmother and not really her style so she told me to take them to the lab (my garage) for a transformation.
First, I cleaned the entire chair with Clorox wipes, then I sprayed the fabric with water. The key is to really saturate the fabric but not so much that it is dripping wet.
After the French Linen dried I applied ASCP Clear wax to the wood trim, seat cushion, and arms. (Didn’t wax the back cushion because I wanted to see the differences in the finish and durability) I then mixed a *wash. (Wash = mix water + paint until it is the consistency of milk) I applied the wash with my brush, then wiped it off immediately with a lint free cloth. **You can leave the paint on longer before wiping off, if you want more coverage.
Now what to do with the other chair? Maybe reverse the colors and do Old White on the wood and French Linen on the fabric?

Have a fabulous day!
