I picked up this oak chair ages ago with the intentions of redoing it quickly. I recovered the seat with muslin, gave the wood a quick sanding and then stopped. For a long time. Finally the other day, I pulled it out and gave it the attention it deserved! It was in great shape – solid and clean – just boring, and that seat had to GO!
I had picked up a package of Tavern Green Milk Paint (by The Old Fashioned Milk Paint Company), mixed it up and painted it on. I was hoping for a bit more chipping but I it stuck pretty good due to my sanding. I love how it turned out – the green has so much depth – it’s not just one flat shade of green. Then I sealed it with a coat of clear wax and it’s good to go – off to Rebecca Christine’s Consignment Boutique!
The seat looks a little stark, and moreso in the pictures. I’m debating on adding green “grainsack” stripes… what do you think?
If you would like to keep up with future furniture revivals, there are many ways to follow on the right! Happy to have you!
