|Setting up my Supplies|
So, today I am using the paint for the first time. It's a dreary Sunday morning here in Georgia but the temperature is mild so my garage is a perfect spot for the work. My sweet husband helps set up the chair to make it easier (and less stressful on my back) to paint. There are almost NO instructions on the can including drying time, minimum temperature to use in (suggest not letting the product freeze), or much about application techniques. I choose a French style chair I had picked up several weeks ago that has a dirty wood finish with hints of black as my first project.

I use a 1" nylon brush and it takes about 40 minutes to do the first coat. The label does suggest that only one coat is needed for most applications. I am studying the finish which is doing some interesting things and it does look like an old French style finish. It is not quite as smooth as I would like and, with no prior experience, I am not certain whether the waxing step will take care of some of that. I think I will apply another coat and see what happens.
