Funny how some plain, boring wood chairs can look fabulous with a bit of paint. Take this plain, boring, well used but solid wood dining chair…

…then take a jar of Country Chic Paint’s limited edition paint in the color Ocean Breeze.

After scrubbing the chair well, give it a coat of this easy to apply All-in-One paint.

When dry, distress with a sanding sponge on areas where wear normally occurs like the seat edges and spindles.

To add to the aged look, I hand painted with a wee brush white liming details in the crevices.

Then to give a bit more durability and shine I put a coat of clear wax over the whole chair and voila, here it is!

Wood should NOT be boring, grab a brush and some paint and make it pretty!!

Lee Ann {Creative Moments}

Hello, my name is Lee Ann and I am the creator at Creative Moments. I have always had a love for vintage pieces and an interest in recycling/repurposing. Creative Moments became the outlet for both. Reloving a piece of furniture no longer in style, in disrepair or tossed aside into a “new, one of a kind” piece makes my heart sing. I love seeing these pieces becoming a part of a home, adding character and charm and providing years of enjoyment.
