Well aren't you the quick learner? :) I NEVER would have been able to do something like that on my 2nd attempt. WOW! Good for you! I love the creamy color you chose (mind sharing what it was?) and the flourishes add a beautiful touch. I'm sure the rest of the set will be just as lovely when you get it done. I'm looking forward to seeing it. Oh, and CONGRATS to you for winning that Silhouette. Yay! So glad you shared in the Silhouette Challenge. :)

Hi Debbie,
Thank you so much for the sweet compliments! 
This was a matter of determination LOL 

The color was from the line of paints from Ace Hardware called Clark Kensington but the fellow there failed to put the label on the can of paint so I don't know the name of the color :( The paint is also a primer, but I mix the DIY chalk paint anyway so I can wax it afterwards. This piece was heavily varnished, but in great structural shape, so I simply painted and added the flourishes. Once I figured out that I had to weed the flourish (I ruined my first sheet of vinyl because I forgot), it was smooth sailing, until I got to sealing it with Mod Podge. 

I do believe winning the Silhouette was the best thing ever! After all, I have goten to 'meet' all of you wonderful ladies!

Hi Tanya, the chair looks soooooo much better! Was that a thrift store find? Or did you already have it? I'm sure it will look great in your new family room, which I'm looking forward to seeing. I hadn't seen your recipe for chalk paint before, but it's absolutely brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing, and for your sweet visit yesterday. Have a great day!

Okay, maybe I've had one too many glasses of wine tonight, but I can't seem to find your chalk paint recipe. Would you believe I was searching all over my Pinterest boards today trying to find it, but couldn't remember where I had seen it?  I just stumbled onto this thread and realized it was YOUR recipe I was looking for!  Can you be a dear and send me a link?  :)  Thanks!

Debbie
