Chelsea Village Framers & Curiosity Shoppe opened their doors on 1 June and Zeki the store owner asked me to re-do a chair that was previously painted with an acrylic enamel paint. The chair had no seat and he did'nt want it upholstered. So I asked hubby to cut a seat from wood!
Instead of spending hours trying to remove the enamel paint, I used some home made chalk paint in Berry Blush. When the chair was painted, I decided to give it a lux feel and used an antique gold paste, Goldfinger, to highlight parts of the chair. Distressing would have shown up the white paint underneath and i did not feel that...lol.
Then what to do with the seat?!
The Graphics Fairy came to the rescue with this French Crown Image. Using the graphite method again, I transfered the image and used a gold paint pen to outline and fill in. I also rubbed some goldfinger in the open spaces of the crown!
To finish her off I gave her a coat of my spray on artist varnish!
She looks quite at home now amongst her cousins!
I am linking up to the graphics fairy's brag Monday!
e-voke...to create a -new!
