my "new" bergere chair

my thrift store bergere chair - after annie sloan and I took over
A few months ago, I found a square-back bergere chair at a thrift store for a song.
I had been itching to try Annie Sloan chalk paint - so I went for the Paris Gray, of course.
I painted the chair and then had it reupholstered.
Now, I know. These chairs are usually covered in a solid silk or linen.
But you know quirky me. I wanted to try something different.
And besides, everything else in my bedroom, home for the new chair, is a solid neutral.
So here is the after:   

 such a sucker for graphic black and white!
And here is the before:

all the detailing on this chair made it perfect for paint and glaze
I really liked the Annie Sloan chalk paint.
Especially the part about not having to prep or sand. Woohoo!
But it is pricey.
The glaze is pricey, too, so I used some Ralph Lauren glaze that I already had.
Now I keep looking around for another piece to paint. 
Hope you have a great weekend!
