Modern Chairs to Aged Beauties

This week I finished up a set of chairs to go with my recent antique kitchen table I completed for a client. Another great thing about painting furniture is that you don't have to have a complete matching dining or kitchen set. These chairs are originally from Pier 1 Imports and had a black finish with red distressing coming through. I painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® in Coco to match the table.

I did minimal distressing on these because I didn't want any of that red paint peeking through. These were finished off with a coat of Annie Sloan Clear Wax and Dark Wax. These chairs went from looking dark and modern to rich and cozy. I am really digging their new look.

Dining tables and chairs are no joke. It has taken me quite a while to finish this project, but it was oh so worth it. The results make it all worth it.


  1. Looking so beautiful modern home furniture, all are very awesome. thanks to this post.

  2. Awesome remake. Pretty cool and lovely for the future use.

  3. Do you wax the top of tables or do you use a lacquer of some sort? I'm new to this process :)

  4. If you're hunting down a decent, moderate seat for your companion or colleague, look no more remote than PC chairs! more
