Mellow that Yellow: Chair Before & After

A few weeks back, I posted this chair that Shayne brought me to revamp for the shop. Several of you LOVED the yellow chair, and I have to agree...in the right place, it would look amazing. However, that place is not Shayne's shop, Style Minneapolis. The shop is monochromatic and soothing..so the yellow had to go!

I gave it 2 coats of gray primer followed by a lot of dry brushing white. I then glazed with a mixture of water and walnut water based stain. She had the cushion reupholstered in a gorgeous tone on tone damask fabric, and now it will fit in the shop beautifully!

And because I'm in a goofy mood, me trying to take a picture of a mirror I re-did, but instead of focusing on the mirror, it focused on my Nicole Ritchie hands :S
