Painted Chair

I got this old chair at an estate sale.  It was very solid, and the upholstery job was in 
perfect shape despite its age.  The only problem was the color and floral pattern 
on the chair.  I hated to re-upholster it so I  decided to update with
PAINT!  I painted the wood base with Annie Sloan old white chalk paint.

I gave it two coats of Martha Stewart's paint.  The color was arrowhead, and added her "fabric" medium.
I then heat set with a blow dryer.  It turned out great.  We added a few vintage pillows from the shop and it has a new retro look.
