Silent Night Chair

Chairs are always a popular seller at my vintage and craft shows.  I painted this one up in black and red chalk paint this summer and then left it until late fall to put the design on. 
I chose a winter scene for the seat.  It is my adaption of a design by Trudy Beard. 
On the chair back, I created the typography and hand painted a simple "Silent Night" on the back in white.  I outlined the wording with black.  The entire chair received several coats of polyacrylic to protect it.  It sold at our November Open House Event.
If you're in northern Michigan, I hope to see you tomorrow at this event...
