~ Cabriole Legs with Chalk Paint ~

I love this chair with its cabriole legs

It is covered with a leopard print and has a needlepoint center

I painted right over the original paint with Old White Chalk Paint

Applied Annie's Clear & Dark Wax

Then Mr. Sweetie said it needed something

So I highlighted with Rub 'n Buff Gold Leaf

AND...I just love it!!!! 

It looks really pretty with the brown transferware and vintage picture

Your chair turned out LOVELY! I received my chalk paint that I ordered from you and have been playing with it - will do a review post soon!

This chair is so charming! I love what you have done here. I just used AS Old White on a couple of things and love it! Now I need to try some Rub N Buff - it looks like a lot of fun!

Inspired by you said...

I love your chair. I just used chalk paint for the first time. Is there a trick to get a nice smooth finish like you can obtain with poly? I tried the wax but not very good at it.

Hi Karla~ I found your blog through Miss Mustard Seed BUT regardless of the giveaway I can see I am really going to love following you. Your blog is beautiful and I have four chairs given to me by my mom that I want to refinish but have never done this before! I am going to get a lot of ideas and inspiration from you. SO glad that I have found you!

Hi Karla,
I am a rep for Caromal Colours - no priming, no sanding, you can achieve a chippy Barn Wood look, using a chipping cream, but I am dying to try your Chalk Paint- wanna swap some paint? Visit me at BushWoodArt.com
I entered to win at Miss Mustard Seed!

I have been perusing your pretty blog...you have wonderful ideas and I think between you and Amy @ Maison Decor that you've convinced me to paint something with Annie Sloan chalk paint. I have one piece that I constantly think I need to paint or re-vamp somehow.
I like the entire vignette around the chair, which is gorgeous btw...but I Love the transferware and love painting. So pretty!
