Antique Chair redo ASCP

I came across this chair at a local thrift store.  In my best antique knowledge, I'm going to tell you this chair is really, really old.  I don't know what style it is, but I am thinking it has to be from the 18th century.  The wood was really worn and dry, and one of the legs a bit wobbly.  But, for $15 I couldn't let her go.  So I brought her home, and spruced her up.

I just love the ornate wood carvings on this chair.

I had some Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Florence I'd been wanting to try out, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity   A couple of coats later, followed by some dark wax and a little distressing, and she was quite lovely in turquoise. 

Curvy, lady-like

Sweet and demure 

with some sexy legs (insert whistle)

I love her.  

Hope you like her too!
