Love them...Baby Blues

Duck Egg Blue High Chair 

I have been inspired by my Grandson's Blue Eyes.  I knew when I saw Annie Sloan's beautiful Duck Egg Blue Chalk Paint I had to find the perfect chair.  A few weeks back we had a day trip to meet my Hubby's Parents in Corinth, Mississippi. We ate lunch and afterwards thought we'd do some junkin'.  My hubby and sweet mother-in-law knew I was on the "prowl" for the perfect chair so they hunted it down for me.

Here she I hurried home to order the paint....:)

 It took me a lot of blog trolling to make sure I had the right technique.  I decided on 2 coats of chalk paint and let it dry about 30 minutes...the paint dries so fast. Then 2 layers of clear paste wax.  Distressed a tiny bit around the the wood would peek through. I think it is just about perfect...:-p

I love how the wax makes the paint shine and the finish is so nice and smooth.
