paloma chair, after

mrs. jones’s summer interns have been hard at work helping her get caught up on projects at the studio…thank goodness!  here’s a chair that was treated to a makeover with annie sloan’s decorative chalk paint® in paloma.  the before:

charlie added lots of texture as he laid on two coats of the paint…great brushstrokes that caught the dark wax when we applied it.

the finishing touches were gilding wax and a seat re-covered in annie’s normandie toile (which in real life is a much more
beautiful blend with paloma…the photos don’t do the fabric justice.)

(if you’re interested in annie sloan’s new fabrics, just come by the studio to take a peek.  we have samples on display, and can have your special-ordered yardage within a few days.)

charlie thinks that normandie is my favorite fabric because it has an adorable goat in the design…there may be something to that.  i do so love a goat.

    Hello Mrs Jones, I love your comment ‘I do so love a goat’.
    I like that style of chair they are such a pleasing shape. Did the stencils that Rachel sent reach you?
