But of course, it is very homely now and needs to be transformed! ....I thought about a bright aqua paint but settled on "tangerine" by Behr.
Behr makes a paint with primer included, I add calcium carbonate powder ( 2 parts paint to 1 part calcium carbonate) to make it into chalk paint. One small sample size jar-- cost about $3.00-- will paint almost any average wooden chair.
Here it is in the bright sunshine! Needs its coat of Minwax finishing wax and it will be ready!
Hmmm, perhaps a nice colorful cushion too!
When I remember that these chairs from Pottery Barn ( below) are priced at $399.00, I feel REALLY good about my new chair!
