What a beautifull day today!
Cold but sunny! There's absolutely no clouds in the sky...
But there's one in Anouk's new ratan chair!
I've been collecting them in pinterest for a while :

They are cute and confortable (they work as lumbar cushions for kids!).
I got mine at Little Vintage Lovers .
It works perfect because the chair is a bit deep for Anouk.
I'm smitten by the way she sit ostensibly while drinking her feeding bottle.
I' not tottaly satisfied by the makeover.
I first spray painted with mat, then gloss. I wish I had something in between. But there wasn't a lot of spray paint choice.
Anyway. It's not that bad.
Remember how the chair looks before?
Crackles. Two coat of paint (one applied with a brush!). Ugly brown color.
As expected, stripping a ratan chair wasn't easy. It took a few nights to get it off.
Unfortunately, the ratan wasn't in very good condition, so I couldn't leave it as it.
I took advantage of last week's sunny weather for a second coat of spray paint...
And this is how it looks right now !
