How to shabby chic

Shabby chic wooden chair.
After the candle sticks and the bedside table I decided my next project would be an old chair that was my mums.
After sanding down the chair I gave it 2 to 3 coats of white paint.

When the paint had dried I painted over with a mixture of  white paint and burnt umber to give it an extra dimension, it took the edge off the stark white of the paint and gave it that old kinda look.

I sanded the edges and anywhere that would get naturally worn.

Finished off with a new seat pad and bargain basket fabric that cost me £2.50.
