Once and a while I have to go on the look-out for a particular piece of furniture, and vanity chairs or vanity stools are definitely on the “most wanted” list. Not always you will find both vanity table and chair at a thrift shop of yard sale, so customers ask frequently if I have any in my workshop. Whenever I see an orphan (vanity) chair, I buy it! This one I found at our local thrift store for $3!! Tucked away in a corner of the store.
Do you spot my “goo gone” spray bottle? Well, this one had a hard-to-take-off yellow sticker. I guess you know the drill: sanding and cleaning with a tsp solution. I decided to make my own chalk paint. I still had a sample can of Benjamin Moore Cool Mint and on this website here is a great tutorial how to make chalk paint. So easy, no need to prime, just two or three coats of chalk paint.
Love that cool minty green!
A bit of distressing and a bit of grey give this little chair something extra:
I sealed the chalk paint with a coat of Annie Sloan clear wax.
I hope you like my mint green chair! I am trying to find a good home for it…
