Uncle Sam - Jessica


Farmer’s Daughter painted a dark outdated chair using Sackcloth, Uncle Sam and Surfboard. The caned sides were painted with Uncle Sam, the legs and surround were painted with Sackcloth and all upholstery was painted with Surfboard, a nice beachy shade of blue. Two coats of full strength paint was used overall with a light sanding to soften the upholstery. Top Coat was used for the upholstery finish and wax for the chair’s structure.

Beautiful wouldn’t you agree!
