Wood Chair Makeover

SONY DSC

I found another wood chair at a garage sale recently and decided to paint this one.  Here is the before {which I just remembered to take as I started painting}.

I went with Old White chalk paint {mainly because I have it}.

A little sanding and then I applied clear wax and very minimal dark wax.

I like how the details on the back of the chair stand out now.  Hopefully someone else will like it, too, because it is now in my booth waiting for a new home!
