Here's a little chair that I worked on last week:
|Beach Cottage Blue Chair (After)|
Here's what the chair looked like before:
So I got my chalk paint out. I first painted some areas with ASCP in Old White. I stippled the paint on and put it on quite uneven. Once it was dry, I applied the ASCP in Louis Blue.

Then I sanded back the chair to look like it was well and truly shabby chic. To achieve some distressing on the seat, I took a wet cloth and wiped away the paint to show the dark wood through. Then I did two coats of clear wax to protect it.

Some white and dark peeking through:
The arching back:
It is the kind of chair that would be great with a heavy wooden desk or in a cottage bedroom with a pile of summer reads on top. I was tempted to keep this one, but my Beach Cottage Blue Chair is looking for a new home. As long as I can get Conor off it!
Here are the legs:
