In a moment of web-surfing fun, I came across a very interesting blog.
The most talented blogess had a problem, worked to find a solution, and succeeded magnificently!
I will let Kristy Swain of Hyphen Interiors tell her story... but as a quick synopsis: she PAINTED an upholstered chair to gain the look she desired when other options were not viable!!
Hyphen Interiors: "Yep, no problem!"
Me: "I gotta try that!!!"
So off I went on a round of the local resale stores.
A chaise lounge with nice lines that would make a great reading chair... let alone a wonderful guinea pig for my experiment.

Hyphen Interiors has a wonderful tutorial on the steps she took to paint her chair. You can find it here.
I followed her steps and it worked beautifully. I used more Textile Medium than she did, but that was the only varient.
So my finished product: A lovely dove grey paint, gloss white legs, and a ruffley brown trim.
Yay, Hyphen Interiors for thinking outside the box!... One of my favorite things to do!
