The paint I use when I paint furniture is always Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This time Provence and Old White mixed 1 +2. Finished with Clear Wax and some Silver.
Soon, very soon, the armchair will be finished. Just some work on the back of the back and fastening the fabric under the chair. This armchair is moving to my younger daughter. It took a while before I found a fabric with pattern and color that she would approve of.
