Before I show these chairs, I am letting you know that I am selling them. Yes, they are cane chairs and they are beautifully Frenchy, but I’ve recently made room for two pairs of French chairs and I just can’t make room for a third. Now it’s out there and you can hold me to it! (It’s tough for me.)
This pair of chairs have a beautiful shape, but a finish that wasn’t quite right for my taste.
I painted the pair in Shutter Gray Milk Paint followed by a wash of Ironstone and one coat of Furniture Wax. The wash brings out the details of the piece and softens the finish to give it a soft, aged look.
It’s a subtle finish, but makes a big difference, especially on a piece with lots of detail.
Here’s my latest video tutorial to show how simple it is to achieve this look…
I hope this pair finds a loving home.
