Antique French Chair

Cait from Little City Farmhouse beautified this antique-style French chair with just a touch of Cobblestone!

Hello friends!

I do a lot of reupholstering in my shop, and that often involves painting the frames of chairs. This is such a fantastic way to really add personality to a chair that needs a little love!

This chair was worn and tired, so I painted it in two coats of Cobblestone. I didn’t prep the chair at all for painting. Because the finish was so worn, it was ready for paint. I love this grey – it goes with everything!

Once it was dry I gave it a good sanding and distressing. The chair had a lot of character and I wanted to emphasize that.

I waxed it with Antique Wax – I love using a dark wax over Cobblestone to really bring out the richness of the colour.

The colour frames out the upholstery perfectly!

Hello! I’m Cait! I am a wife and a mom of two little ones, and a proud auntie of a growing little flock! I first started by refinishing several pieces in my own home, and fell in love with it. Slowly it turned into a business and something I could do from home. I love the thrill of finding old furniture, and I adore the process of refinishing it into something new and fresh. Refinishing furniture is the heart of my business. I believe your home should reflect who you are, and I love helping people get the look they want in their homes by refinishing their furniture for them.

  1. Hello, Cait!
    what a nice job you did on that chair. Am just learning about fabric painting (last one to do so, I know!) but I’m going to give it a try..I liked the pillow on the back of that chair-did you make that as well? if so, can you give some tips on how to make one, with the tufting, etc. It’s very cool looking. Thanks so very much Doreen N.
