And did this!
I love it when he listens to me!!! Well, it was a good idea as you can see. He lovingly painted this chair a great pearlized blue shade. You can't quite see in the photos, but it has a really beautiful sheen. And the distressing is so elegant! I know that sounds a little crazy to say distressing is elegant, but it really is. I especially love the oversized graphic print in Black and White. It's a great modern juxtaposition to the classic lines of the chair. He also added the wooden flourishes to the chair to give it a little more classic flavor.
This chair would look so great in a bedroom or living room area. Or maybe by a hutch in the entry way where you would change out of your snowboots...you know, if you lived in a snowy area.
