Old Ochre Chair Re-do: Paint

Remember these chairs that I traveled to Virginia to purchase from a woman off Craigslist?

I owe a big thanks to Kern and his cousin Elliott for letting me store (and work on) my project at their house.  As with most projects, re-doing the chairs took me longer than I initially planned.

Kern unscrewed the chair bottoms.


The next step was painting the chairs.  I did two coats of Annie Sloan's Old Ochre.  
Remember, with Chalk Paint, you do not have to sand or prime!


I used a sponge brush on some hard to reach areas.





Tune in tomorrow for a tutorial on waxing furniture!
