Repairing and painting a chair

I am thrilled to try my first project with Annie Sloan’s
Chalk Paint.
I have this little chair I use at my dressing table.
This is my dressing table that I painted a while back.  I shared this with you here. 
I realized it was wobbly and loose. So I took it apart,
cleaned the joints and applied glue.
I painted the chair with the Provence blue – it was a little too dark, so I applied two coats of Old White and lightly distressed the chair.
I then applied the clear wax according to direction.
I had ambitions to sew a lacy chair pad, but that will have to be a later project.
I am very happy with the results and am now looking for other paint projects.
Have you tried Chalk Paint – it is quite different and I especially like the wax – it gives it a wonderfully smooth finish!
Thank you for your visit. As I was preparing to take pictures a thunderstorm rolled in.  So the pictures are dark. I am quite happy – my dear flowers are getting a much needed drink of water!
