Hope you've been watching The Great British Design Challenge as Chalk Paint (TM) decorative paint by Annie Sloan has been making lots of appearances. The most interesting one is the transformation of this old chair into a beautiful gentlemen's club chair. You can watch it here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04sn72s or go to You Tube where they have their own channel.
