A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Zeki after he found my lamp table on the internet. When he requested me to re-do a few pieces for his new decor shop, I jumped at the chance! Chelsea Village Framers & Curiosity Shoppe will be stocking a wide range of furniture, decor & gifts, ranging from Shabby chic, French Provencal, Mirrors, prints and much more. I am invited to the opening on 1 June and I will be doing a post on it!
Anyhoo, I've seen the image of the Union Jack everywhere on pillows, totes and the like, so I decided to use the Union Jack for this chair with its very simple lines!
I gave the chair a few coats of home made chalk paint in a soft grey, sanding in between coats. I found the image of the British Flag on the graphics fairy and used the modge podge method to transfer it to the seat.
I then decided to paint the back rest in a contrasting navy blue colour!
To finish the look I distressed the chair in places, added some antique rub in burnt umber and gave it a coat of clear varnish!
I am linking up to the graphics fairy's brag Monday!
e-voke...to create a -new!
