6 Brown Chairs

One of our return customers asked us to paint 6 chairs for her. 

First let me start by saying...Debbie, I said "DO NOT PUT ME IN THE PHOTO". Thank God it's only a partial shot of my back. That T-shirt is over 15 years old. It's one of my favorite painting shirts. So soft. If you were to see the front you could see every color of paint I've ever used over the past 15 years.

There's a lot involved in chairs. First we had to clean them with a degreaser to get off any wax buildup. Next we gave them a light sanding and spray primed them. 

A lot of people that use chalk paint skip the cleaning, sanding and priming. We thought since these chairs were going to be used daily it was worth the extra steps. 

Here they are after they were painted with our chalk paint in one of our favorite colors, Oyster Pearl. We can't say enough about this color. It picks up different hues depending on what it's around. It's more on a gray side. 

The next step is to give them a light sanding and poly.  

Then on to the next project.
