Chippy White Farmhouse Chair


I found this old farmhouse chair at a local ReStore. Doesn't it remind you of "the-chair-in-the-principal's-office" from elementary school? Not that I know much about being in the principal's office. :)









I just loved the legs and knew with a little paint and distressing it would be perfect. I sanded and primed the chair before applying a white latex paint. Once it dried, I sanded it again to distress it a little. I also wiped small amounts of dark brown paint on the edges.






My finished product:






















This, my friends, isn't your principal's chair.
