Walnut Stained and Verdigris Painted Wooden Chair

Before and after chair makeover :)

This sweet wooden chair had a wobble. Luckily it was able to be disassembled to start all over. 

That also made it perfect to stain part and paint part for a fun two tone color scheme.
A good scrub was the first step to remove any thing like fingerprints, dried food etc that would affect paint adherence.

The color portion would come from my new box of Jolie Paint products.
See navy used on this sweet sofa table and malachite used on this adorable chair and gorgeous jewelry box.

I chose Jolie Paint in verdigris; a soft robin's egg blue.

After the first coat of paint went on there some areas on the bow back that needed further sanding. Easy enough to do and repaint. Two coats were the perfect coverage.
AS you can see above it is only a tester size of this color but even after 2 coats on this chair, there is half a tester pot left!!

The wood seat was power sanded down to bare wood.

Chocolate Fusion Desk

I am not usually a brown painter, to get a rich brown I usually go with stain but Fusion Mineral Paint has a color called chocolate that looked yummy. I chose to try it on this solid maple desk.

I just bought some painters pyramids and love them for lifting a project off the ground with easy access to the base all around. Now it is time to paint with the luscious Fusion Mineral Paint chocolate color in 2 coats.

After the first coat, I wet distressed the edges to give some added character to the solid paint color

 I chose new silver brushed stainless steel pulls and knobs, perfect

And because it is a desk that will get lots of use on the top I added 3 coats of Fusion Mineral Paint wipe on tough coat with a wet rag to complete the transformation ...

As a Fusion brand blogger, I have received product in exchange for this post, but ALL the opinions are entirely MY own.  This post contains sponsored links for Fusion Mineral Paint
