Nautical Accent Chair

I found this chair at Good Will this weekend
and I was instantly motivated to try a (new-to-me)
dry brush technique on it.
It was a whopping $4.00 so it certainly would not
be a costly mistake should it not turn out.

Here is how the chair looked when I loaded it up in my car.

I first painted it Paris Grey and once that dried,
I dry brushed Old White over it.  It turned out just as I was hoping. 
I love the results.  The white highlights all of the chair's unique detailing.
After some light distressing, I buffed the entire piece
and the chair frame was finished.
On to the chair seat. 
The existing material just wasn't doing it for me -
I pretty much ripped the fabric off as soon as I could get my hands on it. 
I decided to cover it with a nautical linen that I've had for a little while. 
I love the blue paired with the soft gray frame. 


I originally wasn't planning on keeping this chair,
but I think it just found a new home here!
