I knew I wanted mismatched chairs for the rustic table and bench that we bought at the end of June. I had a mooch on eBay and a guy only 15 minutes from us had a few listings up for chairs and stools of varying materials and descriptions, so I emailed him to see if he would take one price for all of them.
This has scored me seven chairs and three stools which all needed painting to match our living room. So far, I’ve managed to paint… three. Life with a baby!
They’re far from perfect, but I’m really pleased with the overall effect (excuse the furniture layout – everything’s a bit squashed while we have the walls painted). I think the mismatched chairs and the bench work really well together and suit the room.
This took about 2/3 tin of Annie Sloan Original White Chalk Paint, and about 1/3 tin of Rust-Oleum Clear Furniture Wax. I have a few other pieces of furniture to crack on with when I get the time (the dresser; Scarlett’s drawers; my dressing table stool), plus the three stools need repainting and staining to go under the kitchen counter; I think we could maybe do with another chair painting for the other end, and then we could put one or two in our room and Scarlett’s room as we have the space. It’s always good to have emergency chairs!
