Chalk Paint® Paris Grey Chairs

I could not resist purchasing these chairs at barn sale.  I knew as soon as I saw them they would look much better painted in Chalk Paint® Paris Grey.  The process was so easy.  Here is the before:

I painted the entire chair Paris Grey including the fabric.  I moistened the fabric by brushing on water then applied the paint.  It take approximately 24 hours for the first coat to dry.  The second and third coats toke a few hours each.  The following day I applied Annie Sloan’s clear wax on both the fabric and wood areas.  I mixed the clear wax with low odor mineral spirits about half wax and half mineral spirits and brushed the wax onto the painted fabric.  Finally, I applied Annie Sloan’s dark wax on the wood portions of the chair to give them more definition.
