Chalk Paint Chair & Ottoman And Upholstery

My niece bought this chair and ottoman and wanted me to recover. We decided to chalk paint the base of them and only recover the soft parts. We made chalk paint using calcium carbonate, water and Linen color paint. It was a dark green color so it took four coats. I sanded after the 4th coat. It turned out great.

1st coat of paint
