Italian Carved Chair {Country Chic Paint}

If you have been around here long, you know I love French and Italian furniture. All the curves and carvings are perfect! It is a furniture painters candy.

When I came across this Italian carved chair my first thought was, "I am keeping this for myself!"
Unfortunately, it did not go in my living room and I didn't want to touch the perfect upholstery.

I knew exactly how I wanted to paint it. I used my layering technique. It is the same technique I used on this dresser.

I wanted the Italian carved chair to show all of its lovely details. Needless-to-say, I fell in love with it all over again. What do you think?



It took only two colors to achieve this look.




I layered Country Chic Elegance and Vanilla Frosting. I use these colors a lot.
When I finished layering I sanded and added light and dark wax. I use the dark wax to enhance the piece by giving it depth.


I even brushed lightly over the upholstery tacks. To me, it looked more authentic.

One of my special customers went home with this beauty.
Am I weird that I feel better when I know the person that gets the pieces I want?

It just makes me feel better about giving it up.

Thank God for pictures! I can always go back and drool a little. Ha!


Every now and again you come across a special piece. This one gets on the list.

Would you put it on yours?

Oh and I only had one winner come forth! So I will now choose another. Please email me with your address.

Congratulations!
