I used the Laura Ashley eggshell in Duck Egg blue I had left over from my sewing room chair project. The method here was 1 coat of primer, followed by 3 thin coats of eggshell, gently rubbing down between coats.
I then used fine glasspaper to distress the edges, and finished with a wiped-on coat of clear wax and a good buff with a cloth. The finish is lovely and satiny smooth - worth the effort.
The seat pad was repadded with cotton wadding from Dunelm and recovered in this lovely duck egg check linen fabric (£19.99 per metre - Dunelm) I've enough to make some cushions too.
Just need to repaint her room now - but that will have to wait until half-term!
Hope you like it.
Have a lovely weekend x
