That looks lovely! I'm watching out for something similar to put in Esme's room. Did you staple the fabric?

@autumnalgirl I stapled the seat of the chair and part of the top but then used upholstery tacks on the back

They are both fab but I absolutely adore the 2nd, it is sooo nice! What sort of paint did you use? @Allie

@clothmama thanks. I used chalk paint on both. I used Annie Sloan on the first chair and an unbranded one on the second. Personally I thought the unbranded one gave a better finish.
