 A beautiful rustic character finish with texture, plenty of age and character. A creative project we completed today on a rainy day unleashing a little creativity in our studio. We love using old chairs as a paint project to either brighten up the corner of room or to add character. Great for using as a pot plant holder or as decor, it also makes a great bathroom piece to hold rolled up towels and soaps. A great showcase of how to create a character finish on an old plain wooden chair with straight lines, utilising all the marks and dings it's had over the years and enhancing all the imperfections and adding more texture  in a  rustic character finish. 

What we did: 
Hand painted with texture using Berry Nude Premium Chalk Paint 
Dark Wax 
Coloured waxes in areas with Firefly, Agave, Purple sash, Crushed Lavender and Forget Me Not 
Dry brushed in areas in Liberty, Forget Me Not, & Purple Sash, then knocked down with dark wax in these areas 
Pulled back & distressed with both steel wool & 240 grit sand paper 

A more involved finish but each step is beautiful, whether you stop at Berry Nude with dark wax or want to add more colours to it, whatever your imagining, its possible and our tip for a finish like this is use colours and draw inspiration from the colours around in your interior space.
