Tri Color Chair

I have had this chair in my attic for years and couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it.
It was in desperate need of a facelift. The wood seemed to have never had any stain or wax on it...just bare wood.
I couldn't decide on a color, so I picked three! 
 Since the wood was bare, I just picked 3 colors out of my supply of acrylic paints.
 Once I had the chair painted, 
I sanded the "you-know-what" out of it.

Then I waxed it with Fiddes dark wax.

 I'm so glad I couldn't decide on a color...
this chair is much happier with three!
