To paint or not to paint...that is the question!

I have some darling grain sacks
I'm going to use to recover this chair

I started sanding in preparation for paint
(yes, I know ASCP requires no prep,
I just like to be VERY thorough!)

I sorta like what I ended up with...
all rough and shabby and distressed... paint or not to paint?
What do y'all think?


  1. I think I 'd leave it. Did you put the material you are choosing up next to it to get an "idea" that helps sometimes. There are times when I have to sit and "look at something" for a few days and let it tell me what it wants so to speak. That way When I get the "comfortable yeppers this is it feeling" I am not sorry for my decision. Hope that helps. Mary Ann

  2. Check out my blog. I have a tutorial on how to use aluminum foil to give furniture patina!


  3. Andie, this I have to see...going to look now!
