When I think of summer I think of the smell of fresh cut grass, baseball, eating dinner on the patio, and sunshine! And, with that in mind came my inspiration for this adorable pair of chairs. I love the shape and detail of the backs and I just knew if I dug deep into my armoire of paint I would pull out the perfect color to accompany one of my favorite fabrics.
The first thing I did was remove the pads & rip off the tired old navy stripe fabric. I saved one of the covers for a template, which I always like to do so I have an accurate measurement for the yardage I need for the new fabric.
After giving the chairs a good wipe down, I put on a nice even coat of "Fresh Mustard" by Country Chic Paint.

We started off with a single coat, lightly sanded with 220 grit to smooth out any brush strokes we may have created & then one more final coat. To seal and protect it, we used Country Chic Paint Hemp Oil.
