One of my very favorite bloggers is Liz Marie Galvan. She posted a wooden chair makeover that I knew was made for me to copy!
But seriously, I had 2 of these exact same chairs that my Grandma had given me and they had been waiting for the perfect bright idea to come along.
I pulled off the leather cushions, filled in the upholstery holes with wood filler, let dry, and sanded them smooth. One of the many perks of chalk paint: no primer needed! So I was able to immediately start painting.
I used Valspar’s Cape May Cobblestone mixed with chalk paint powder additive and sealed it with wax. I roughed it up a bit with sandpaper since I like a bit of the wood to show through. I have thought about distressing them even further. I would love your opinion!!
These chairs kind of bounce around my house. Sometimes you will see them in my front room (pictured above), but currently they are in my family room.
What do you think? Should I distress them even further, or do you like them as they are?

I just got one of this chairs from someone who was putting it in the garbich. So I want to paint it. I may have to ask you more questions later on. I love how this two of you look!
It really was so easy, good luck painting! Let me know if you have questions!
