Pantone Inspired Chair Completed

(Photo: Tangerine Paisley Dream Finished and ready for sale)

I have finished all the details I wanted to incorporate to the chair and over the weekend I will hand rub the first coat of varnish.  I hand rub the varnish to eliminate drips and to ensure a nice coat to the entire piece. I will do this about 5 to 7 times in between each coat.  My hand painted chairs are functional not just decorative so varnishing them well and letting them cure correctly and finishing them off with a coat of natural wax will ensure that the chair will be enjoyed for years to come.
I always recommend that my chairs be dusted with clean lint free cloth there is no need to use furniture polish.  The chairs can be waxed once a year; this hardens over time and protects the  decorative painting to the chair. I will sew up the fabric that inspired this chair and make a throw out of it.

I'm already working on another piece of furniture, a dresser which needs a lot of work. Poppy flowers and butterflies have inspired my decorative theme for this piece and another great piece for a girl's room.
