I actually completed this project quite a while ago, but never got around to writing up the blog post. Maybe because I'm missing some pictures. For this project I started with a simple child sized folding chair and painted it with Old Fashioned Milk Paint in Tavern Green.
I then created a grain sack image using my Silhouette software and cut it out onto sticker paper. Once the chair was prepped I peeled away the sticker backing and stuck my stencil to the chair back.
Next I mixed up a small but thick batch of Miss Mustard Seed's Linen Milk Paint and used a small stiff brush to stipple the paint onto the stencil.
Once the paint was dry I removed the stencil which pulled up a little bit of the paint leaving a nice aged look to the chair. I sanded everything down and added a coat of hemp oil to finish it off.
