I applied one coat of Louis Blue. The coverage was great. Don't get frightened or start questioning my sanity or sense of style................... I know it's bright!
Here's the chair totally painted.
So, I got so involved in painting the chair that I forgot to photograph the second paint application! After the first coat of Louis Blue, I applied a coat of Old White. I dry brushed the Old White on, keeping my brush very dry by wiping it on a towel before I initially touched the brush to the chair. (Sorry there's no picture of this stage in the process. I'll do better, I promise!)
With fine grade sand paper, sand the chair as little or as much as you like. I wanted the chair "aged" in the areas where normal wear and tear would rub off the paint. In some areas I gently sanded the white paint so that some of the blue would show through. This step is personal. You'll know when it looks the way you want it to.
With a wide wax brush, apply 1 coat of clear wax. The brush allows you to get the wax into all of the details on the chair. Work in small sections wiping off the extra wax with a clean cloth.
So here's where I got with the program and started photographing again. The next step is to apply one light coat of the dark wax with the wax brush. I worked the wax in very small sections almost immediately wiping off the wax with another clean, soft cloth. The purpose is to wipe off most of the wax leaving only enough to bring out the detail in the chair and give it an aged look. Again, this is personal. In the picture below, keep in mind that the remaining bright blue areas will be covered by upholstery.
