Rolling Desk Chair

I've been searching for a rolling desk chair for the longest time and I finally found one in my budget!

I liked the color of the wood but I knew I wanted to paint it.

The chair came a little "distressed" which was fine.

But overall it was in great condition.

I chose MMS Milk Paint in Boxwood.  I love green so this was an easy color choice.  Since I didn't want chipping, I also used MMS Bonding Agent.  And to bring out those distressed areas, I used MMS Antiquing Wax.  By the way, this is not a sponsored post.  I'm new to milk paint and refinishing furniture so when I found the Miss Mustard Seed blog,  I bought some of the products.  She has great tutorials on how to use them so it was an easy way for me to get started.  I have enjoyed using these products and I'm very happy with the results I've gotten.

The color is great and adding the antiquing wax just gave it that aged feel.

I love the way the green chair looks with the cream desk.

  1. Your chair turned out lovely, I really like the green that you picked. It goes so well with the desk. Great job! Visiting you from WOW.

  2. The color is just amazing! The makeover totally turned a plain chair into something so special. Found you on WOW and pinning.

    Have a great day!
