This tired, old Windsor Chair was pretty in need of a sprucing up, don't you think?
A fantasic example of an authentic Windsor Back Chair, the only thing holding it back from being fabulous was it’s awful, beat-up, beige paint job. Originally, I thought I would stain this chair, but I fell hard for a certain color of blue from Glidden® paint. I loved the idea of a blue patina on this old chair and knew I could come close to the antique inspiration piece that I found in an old book that my Dad had kicking around.
Because you never want painted furniture to look gloppy, or thick, and because I didn’t want to have to sand all of the Windsor rungs on this baby, I decided to use Glidden paint DUO, which is a paint + primer in one. DUO went on incredibly smooth. I was able to let it sit overnight and then move on to the patina part of the finish the next day.
