Makeover Perfection {guest post}

Krista from The Happy Housie is back with inspiration on how you can use your sample pot of Country Chic Paint!

Hello everyone! It is Krista from The Happy Housie back again to share a recent project that I did with only one sample sized jar of Perfection! A Perfection Chair with Gold Wax and Gold Dipped Legs.

I started out with an old chair that I had painted about a year ago. Unfortunately it had gotten a little damaged so it was time to freshen up. It also had such a great shape that I thought it would look stunning in Perfection. I used only the sample jar for this entire chair project!!

It started out like this...

I had originally painted the legs with a dipped green effect but wanted to do dipped gold this time, so I taped off a line....

And then went to town painting my Perfection.

I did three coats, letting it dry a few hours between each coat.

On the third coat I only let the paint dry for about an hour and then used some sand paper to distress the edges of the chair...

Lastly, I taped off the legs again and gave the bottom portion of the legs a few coats of gold spray paint.

I finished it off with a good coat of gold wax. I brushed on a fairly thick coat, let it dry for several hours, and then buffed it off with a dry, clean, lint-free cloth.

All done!

I love distressing a piece like this that has such a great spindly shape to it.

I think it turned out stunningly and love the hit of purple and gold added to our springy entry hall.

(think foodie but for houses). I love all things related to houses: decorating, DIY, organizing, crafting, gardening, and more. I love sharing projects and ideas, and especially love finding old pieces and fixing them up to make them vibrant and beautiful again.
