Extra Chair

    Almost everyone needs an extra chair, right?  When company comes over you need extra seating, or you need a chair in your bedroom to sit on while you put on your shoes.  This was a nicely made Thomasville chair whose only fault was its unfortunate mauve cushion.....I had some pillow ticking material that I got from Donna at that I had been wanting to use, so I removed the old covering and replaced it with the ticking.  My first inclination was to paint the body of the chair white, but it was too stark of a contrast with the off white of the ticking.  I painted the back of the chair blue and dry brushed it with white.  The rest of the chair was painted in white and distressed with a wax relief technique and light sanding.  This will be at the cabin tomorrow!
