Just right to begin painting a few small pieces that have been w-a-i-t-i-n-g.
Two children's chairs - one green and one yellow
and a small stool painted green.
2 coats of paint on the green chair and stool, 3 plus touch ups on the yellow chair. Wax finish on green stool and chair.
Low Stool (the kind that does in front of a sink for a toddler I think).
Stool before/after - seems to be made from 2 x 10 lumber. Very sturdy.
Painting progress (in reverse order) 2 coats finished, 2nd coat going on and green over purple first coat.
Chair before/after (yellow).
A daytime grouping with the yellow (more accurate color ) chair.
I wiped the spider webs and dust off the chair and started painting (same for yellow chair).
Two coats of paint, dried overnight, waxed, polished and finished.
Before and After
Night and daylight lighting are quite different. Chair color is the color seen below in the paint jar rather than the somewhat lime color above. More post photo planning needed.
Paints and Finish
Gypsy Green Debi's Design Diary DIY Paint by Heirloom Traditions (bought at Spruce Collective in Abbotsford BC). First try with this paint. Smooth as cream to use. This is a chalk type paint.
Waxed with ASCP Clear Wax and a short handled wax brush (my favourite handle length of getting into small spaces).
I wax the chalk-clay type paint because it dries flat (not satin) and the wax seals the paint after polishing. More than one coat can be applied and polished.
The yellow latex covered differently than the chalk-clay type paint and took 3 coats and a few touch ups. It dries satin.
I am pleased with the paint/finish on the three small pieces. They are going into my booth.
Teaser - child size table to be painted, soon. There were 3 chairs with this table (I painted one turquoise, one yellow and one green and the table will be white, maybe).
I painted the first chair turquoise (CeCe Santa Fe), put it in my booth and it sold.
Thank you for visiting today.
