It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost two years since Taylor built our dining room table and I scored a deal of the year on Craigslist…it really paints a clear picture of our procrastination problem! I searched high and low for a seating solution around our big farmhouse table and finally found 6 chairs (with cushions!) for $100. The seller was a 20-something boy-man who obviously didn’t know the chairs’ worth or potential which worked out superbly for me!
I scooped them up along with a can of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White and set out on my first Annie Sloan painting mission. After I applied the first coat to one chair I was saddled with mixed emotions:
After the cuts were made, I laid it face down on the table and began pulling up the side (making sure there was enough fabric to cover each side and the corners) and then started stapling.
