How to Paint a Vintage Armchair

I found this vintage armchair in a local treasure store. I never planned on buying anything when I went in. But the armchair I spotted in the corner had a yellow tape (CAUTION was all I saw) strung across it. If curiosity killed the cat, I was pending D E A T H. Yep, I bought it.

Learn how to update your own armchair with this easy peasy tutorial!

Products Needed:

First, I cleaned with White Lightning.

I painted the wood parts of the chair with two coats of Flamingo chalk mineral paint and highlighted with Fluff using the blending technique.

After blending and highlighting, I decided to just go with a solid coat of Flamingo, so I painted over it.

I layered the Caviar (rich black) chalk mineral paint over the Flamingo with a dry brush technique and allowed it to dry.

Then, I added White Wax with a premium chip brush.

The Dixie Dirt was applied with a soft brush over the white wax while it was still wet and then allowed to dry over the next few days.
