Hello everyone. Today is one of these days I don’t want them to end. Do you see the picture above? Well, that cute little boy is my son Lucas when he was almost 3, starting kindergarden only some years ago. The pic was taken on his first kindergarden day, and it has been hanging on his locker door for the last 3 years, today was his last day at the kinder, and tomorrow is Lucas’ first day at school…. and right now I am just a very proud mamá and I felt like sharing this with you. 😉
Today’s post is about the my own Union Jack version…. as for the transformation process, well it was as simple as it looks on the pictures. Really, very easy!
I painted all over it with mix of French Linen and Old White. When it was dry I lime washed the wood part with Old White, followed by Annie Sloan Clear Wax, only on the painted wood, I did not apply wax on the fabric. I painted the Union Jack flag on the back and seat of the chair, I used tape to to recreate the lines.
The Red is Chalk Pain™ Burgundy and the blue is Chalk Paint™ Aubussom Blue, I finished the chair by adding new nails around the upholstering, that was probably the only tedious part… but it was all worth it, I love the result!
Keep it simple!
