I jumped on the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint bandwagon! When you hear great things about something, you (I) just have to try it! I’ve been waiting a few weeks and finally it arrived! Minus the wax, it’s on back order. I can live with that. In the meantime, here’s what I did with my Versailles Chalk Paint!
The chair before. Notice how shiny the chair is. There’s a reason I wanted to paint this one first. All the hype about the Chalk Paint is: No priming, or sanding necessary. No removing of old wax, paint or varnish. This paint will stick to most things including plastic, stone, bricks, concrete and metal. (Copied from the back of the can)

I didn’t sand or prime!
Sanded areas for the aged look.
I used a Coffee Sack to cover the cushion of the chair. (hint, hint from the title)
I am kind of loving the matte finish, which is an option, if I decide not to use the wax…
