Ever After Chair {guest post}

Our pretty purple, Ever After was used by Crystal from The Driftwood Home to give this chair the perfect, feminine upgrade it needed!

I really love how bright colors can be so versatile, especially when blending different styles of decor together. The color “Ever After” from Country Chic Paint’s fall limited edition colors reminds me of a lovely field of lavender and lilac blended. I really love how this muted purple can really tie in a modern color with a cottage feel.

We just bought a new industrial dining table, so this style of country/cottage chair would not work well with the style. We ordered some new chairs, but these were in need of a makeover. I sprayed three coats of Ever After on one of the chairs and gave it a light distressing.

This paint is super easy to distress so I had to be decisive about the distressing and didn’t want it to look over done. I also wanted to add some character to the chair and also highlight some of the spindles. I sealed with a clear polyurethane and used a white wax to lightly coat the chair, but not detract from the color. I did add a few more layers to the distressed areas and spindles to give it a “touched by snow” look.

This color is really pretty especially with blending with other neutrals like white and gray. I can definitely see this color in a nursery, but also for those who love lavender and lilac. I would also really love to see this color on curvy pieces like French provincial style furniture that are just destined for a lovely fairy tale themed room.
