Chair Is Done ! and Pretties

Well it's as complete as it well ever get.  I am not fond of things that take 4-5 days to do. As I have said before I am impatient with this process.
This it the detail of the leg's. I used two different colors for the antiquing. A brown and and off white. So, here it is. Now my next job will be to tackle the dressers. Wish me luck. There still at my parents home and I'll have to go over there. 
Now for the pretties. I purchased from Betty at "She's Sew Pretty". I love the pretty pink toile fabric, on this pin cushion.
I purchased the chandelier crystals off of Ebay. They are a pretty blue, and also clear. I'll put them on my candle stick holders I purchased recently.

I just found your blog and enjoyed looking around. I love the chair. I just bought 2 similar ones for my bedroom. May I ask- you said you used brown and white to antique the chair. Was there a specific order that you used? Thanks. I'll be back to visit. JoAnne

Answer to Joanne's question :
I used the brown first then the off white.

I would apply with a paint brush, wait a few seconds and then briskly wipe off the access. I waited a day then went back and applied the off white in the same manner.

Thanks for asking and stopping by.

Glenda your chair turned out great. Can't wait to see the dresser and everthing together. Love the crystals. Thank you for visiting my blog, I will probably sell on both or at least show items on both. I just had the new website built, so it's not all put together. Have a Blessed Day and keep inspiring us.

Hi Glenda!
WOW! You did a great job!! Your chair looks FABULOUS! It may have taken a little while to do but it was worth it, just remember you had to deal with the fabric. The dressers will be much easier, larger but easier.
The toile pincushion is adorable and the chandelier crystals are going to look fab!
Hugs, Sherry
PS I think you should do the 5 question tag!

It is awesome! I know I said I liked it without the antiquing but I've changed my mind. Great job!
