I was pretty excited to win seeing as how I love burlap, and I'm usually not very lucky.
BJ had every confidence in me that I would be super creative, and come up with an original idea. Well, I put part of the coffee sack on a chair seat. I'm pretty sure it's been done, but it is cute on the little $3 garage sale chair.
I still have another project in mind with the coffee sack leftovers.
This is the $3 chair.
It needed a paint job. I painted it with Rustoleum Black Chalkboard paint. I had some left over from my chalkboard projects. I have also painted a shelf, a bedroom chest and a library table with it. It has the same no sanding, no priming properties of Annie Sloane chalk paint, and the finish is flat.
Here is the shelf:
And here is the chest:
Both were distressed with sandpaper mostly on the edges, and then a walnut stain pen darkened the exposed wood. I put two coats of Lundmark's Clear Paste Wax on top. Then lightly buffed when dry. We do not use the furniture as a chalkboard. I like the finish and I like the price.
Here is the chair after paint, distressing, stain pen, and wax.
My husband helped put the burlap on the seat. We were so worried about getting the stripe straight on the front of the chair that the design got slightly off center. It's still a pretty cute chair (and I didn't dare suggest we straighten it).
This adorable little bunny hockey hankie was also tucked in my package. So cute!
Thanks BJ and thanks Home a la Mode!
