I wish y'all could come to my house and feel the smooth finish on this chair! I rubbed on some Antiquax after smoothing out the distressed bits with fine-grain sandpaper. I love it! It looks great in my kitchen.
This picture below has three different white wood finishes: On top, the souvenir spoons are on a crackle-finished tray. The chalkboard frame has Rustoleum Heirloom White spray paint, and the chair has a handpainted, mouse-distressed and waxed finish.
I think I'll tackle one of the aqua chairs next. It's pretty much exactly the same colour as the kitchen walls. I wonder how the next one will turn out?
