|The manky old fabric that came off the front of the chair. It was loose so I pulled it off. Yellow stripes.|
|One coat of Annie Sloan's Barcelona Orange|
|I cleaned the wood with odorless mineral spirits before I painted.|
|After only one coat there was a lot of wood showing through.|
|Ginger finds painting inexpressibly tedious.|
|I got that sucker up on the picnic table to to put the second coat on.|
I got some fabric online. You can see a picture of it here at this website. It's a neutralish linen/cotton blend called Fritz in a color Bisque. It has a slight stripe. I got it last week but just dropped it off at the upholsterer today.
I liked doing all this so far, I can see myself reworking other old pieces of furniture. Will post more when I get the chair back. I still have to wax it...
