Remember a while back, I showed you a French chair and footstool that I was making over? You can read the post here.
Introducing Avian....isn't she beautiful?
To refresh you memory of how she used to look, here is a before picture.
I painted her with Old White in ASCP, sanded and waxed with both clear and dark wax.
Though I tried and tried to get all of the staples out and recover her myself, I couldn't do it without ruining the wood. So I broke down and took her to an upholsterer. He did a wonderful job.
I found this wonderful fabric in a creamy linen background and a pretty blue pattern of birds and ferns.
I think she turned out perfect. When I saw the fabric, I knew I had a color scheme for my master bedroom. I was looking for something serene.
You are getting a sneak peak of the color I chose for the walls of my master bedroom. It is called Cold Steel, though it is not cold at all. It is a blue gray color, by Olympic Paints from Lowe's. I have a little more painting to do and I will show you the whole room in the next post.
