Hello Readers! I am excited to share with you yet another Illustrated Chalk Painted piece of furniture. Done up in a cheerful color of yellow (the hand made Sunflower Chalk Paint mixed with Alamo White by Shabby Paints) and shaded in a Sunflower color. The line work was done in Licorice from Shabby Paints also. NOTE: I tried the DIY Latex recipe... poor coverage, ruins brushes, costs more over all, and drips a whole lot, takes longer to dry between coats and over all I just didn't care for it like I care for my Shabby Paints Acrylic Chalk Paint. Adding Alamo White to the Sunflower helps on the lighter color but it still had a lot of issues and took me longer to finish this piece then I would have liked.
This chair would be so much fun in a Nursery or Child's bedroom.
Or perhaps a Library or Classroom with a reading rug and story time!
Maybe it was meant for that perfect photo shoot for a photographer prop to have for their clients.
Hope you enjoyed this piece. Please check out our other posts and find us on Facebook at All Gussied Up Southern Home Furnishings & More.
NOW THAT'S ALL GUSSIED UP!
