A lot Sweet Pea Pink, a bit French, and a bunch floral.
Many of you know how I have bemoaned the fact Sweet Pea Pink has left the building (supply stores!)
I had enough on my last day with her to paint this pseudo-French chair.
I found the chair fresh from the sixties with its original white and gold French Provincial (?) paint and its silk (?) damask cushion at a local thrift.
I thought she was worthy of a Sweet Pea makeover.
Shamelessly bottomless she perched on the paint frame to begin the makeover.
Notice I have repurposed the doors from the The Big Ugly for a base when I am painting.
And to think Chucks was planning to throw them away!
Resplendent in her new pink dress.
Next I took a sanding sponge to her to distress the pink.
More distressing all around.
I have shared this trick with you before and will again.
For the final sanding before waxing, I use a very cheap, rough paper towel.
Rub hard all over.
Results in a satin-y smooth finish.
I had a piece of throwback fabric (probably nineties or maybe earlier).
I do love pink with creamy yellow and a bit a blue thrown in.
Instead of centering the large floral pattern, I moved the fabric down toward the front of the chair.
It appears the flowers are growing up from the edge.
Yep, she is a lot pink, a bit French, and a bunch floral.
She danced her way over to the store.
I plan a whole pink theme as a tribute to Sweet Pea.
There is a tiny bit of paint left in the last can - maybe for a small box or basket.
I promise I will not mourn the loss of spray paint again.
