Heather's Chair Transformation...Boring to Chic!

Everyone at Rhonda J's Shoppes loves to paint! We also love to share and inspire our customers to transform their lives with just a bit of paint. Here is a recent transformation from Heather in our Buda TX Shoppe!


Transforming solid wood chairs from boring to chic is easy with Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan. You can even create custom colors with ease. This fresh look is contemporary yet a bit shabby and has a whole lot of personality!

For this project I created a custom mix of equal parts Emperor’s Silk and Barcelona Orange to make a beautiful coral color. To get more of a red undertone I added just a bit more Emperor’s Silk to the mix. If you want a more pink undertone just simply add a small amount of Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan color Pure White.

Here are the steps I used to create a simple but fabulous chair transformation.

1. Painted entire chair with two coats Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan color Pure White.
2. Made custom color coral by combining Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan colors Emperor’s Silk and Barcelona Orange.
3. Using small quatrefoil stencil and coral color mix, stenciled seat of chair only.
3. Once stenciled seat was dry to the touch it was slightly distressed over entire chair.
4. The final step was a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax.

Now this chair is contemporary, a little bit shabby and a whole lot of fun!
