A chair.

Slowly working on the seatings.:) Here is the original look of the elegant chair from DHE.

The fist stage of getting it older.;) I used only sienna acrylic paint first.



I really wasn't sure about greying the fabric but to so much "used" wood, white fabric looked a bit strange. ;) Added light grey acrylic paint also on the wood.:)

And the chair dressed up with Lorraine's fab newspapers and books made by me.




Z wolna pracuję nad miejscami siedzącymi. Dzis pokazuję Wam przemianę eleganckiego krzesła. Nie byłam pewna co do zmiany koloru tapicerki, ale biel za bardzo kontrastowała z mocno zużytym drewnem.:)Do "zużycia" drewna wykorzystałam farbki akrylowe w kolorze sienna i jasny szary, ten ostatni także do zmiany koloru tapicerki. Na krzesle moje ulubione gazety od Lorraine i książki zrobione przez mnie.:)

Pity that chair - first he lost his youth and then he gained all this load to carry (lol).
You did a terrific job, Ewa, thanks for sharing these pictures with us.
Greetings

Nice aging process, you may have already tried dilute tea or coffee for aging the fabric, you can build up the colour gradually, but of course it would be more of a brown colour. Looks fabulous with the stack of old books, a real bookworm's room.
