Chandelier Stenciled Chair

I recently refinished this chair that my husband had gotten for free while out at a tag sale a few months ago.

I loved the lines of it and knew that I wanted to do something heavily distressed but with a special modern twist.

Here's the chair before, after I painted it flat black and was about to stencil, and sanded and waxed.

I love seeing all the natural wood coming through and how the wax gives it a beautiful sheen.

For the chandelier I chose gray craft paint and the same stencil I used in here.

Have you ever stenciled furniture before?  My husband was kind of shocked when he came home and saw the finished product; he couldn't believe it was the same chair.


On a totally unrelated note. Are any of you fellow blogspot bloggers having dificulty getting all of your comments? They normally go into my email (inbox or junk) and that is where I respond from, but I am noticing that I am not getting some of them sent over and they will only show on my actualy blog. Hmmmm.

Have a great rest of your week!
