Patriotic Chairs–God Bless America


I was asked by my friend to paint some chairs she had.  She wanted them painted like one she had purchased years ago, but with my “twist” on it.  Here is the before picture. 


Here is the after.  I washed the chairs, painted them with Americana acrylic paints, dry brushed to age the paint, applied an antique medium to really age them and finally applied the poly finish.



Here is a close up of the dry brush stage….



The picture below is at the acrylic stage only, before my “antique” layers.


My friend was pleased with how they turned out.  I liked them too.  Now I will have to paint me some too.  Blessings from Wisconsin!
