I mixed new colours

of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to make the colours used to paint this chair. Sturdy, comfortable, clean yet boring.

I had pinned a similar one done with a Union Jack that Annie has shown to feature Napoleonic Blue. I wasn't really up for the math to do a flag so stripes it was. I started with a pale base

 whipped out the Frog Tape and varied the width of the stripes while trying to match up the seat and backrest.

it looks all bright and childish until the dark wax knocks back the colour and makes it looks aged.
The paint is also great on metal. The chrome parts were painted in graphite then waxed as well.
No stripes on the back.

so much better than before. Don't you think?
