What a beautiful Easter weekend we have had! So thankful! The kids played outside more than they have in a long time. I love when they can hardly keep their eyes open when it is bedtime!
I got a little time to work on some chairs that I picked up awhile ago. Here is what it looked like before. (Um yikes, please ignore that garage mess!)
I fell in love with the detail on the back of these chairs. I was pretty lucky; and got three of these little beauties! I have been searching for a project with a bunch of detail that I could use some glaze on. Usually when I wanted to get the glazed look I just use wood stain. Lets face it-I had the stain on hand and was too
I painted the entire chair in a couple of coats of chalk paint. Then I sanded it down to make it nice and smooth. Isn't this green fun? It is the color of one of my upstairs bathrooms-Retro Green!
I mixed the glaze with some black paint-I never measure-just kind of dump it in!
I had a damp rag handy, so after I coated the glaze on a section I just wiped it off with the rag.
