When Momma Aleene asked for her own special chair in the studio, I knew exactly what I wanted! My grand-niece Savannah Starr had painted this upholstered chair last year for her studio space but decided not to use it. I’ve seen it sitting in my sister’s garage for quite some time now so when she was recently cleaning the garage, it was an easy decision when she said “do you want THE chair?” It is a huge wing-back and I tried to fit it in my car without success so I thought I had to pass on it until Heidi offered to drive it down. It wouldn’t even fit in her SUV so she brought it in her pick-up truck. I tossed on some sweater pillows that Heidi made and now THIS is a chair fit for a queen!
I tried to find my before pictures of this chair, but without success, I can only tell you that from memory, it had a busy floral pattern. It took two coats of Turquoise Tulip Soft Paint to transform this chair. What I love about the Tulip Soft Paint is that it dries soft and flexible. Everyone is amazed that it is painted! Now Momma has her own special place in the studio to catch all the action.
When I was looking through some vintage photos, I found this photo and love Momma’s pose. This was a promotional photo that was taken as she was just launching her empire :)
