A Grainsack + Some Ticking

Many, many months ago (over a year) an old, orphaned armchair joined my inventory...   and there it sat while I waited for inspiration to strike.  
I've used dropcloth for upholstery before with great results so using a stenciled dropcloth was definitely an option.  I really like the grain sack look but I didn't have one and whenever I looked online, they were expensive!  So recently when I went to a local antique show, I was excited when I found a vendor there who had two sacks in good shape.

More than a year later, I finally knew what I wanted to do with this chair!
The frame of the chair is painted with HM chalk paint using a mistint from Behr.  The seat and back of the chair are upholstered with black/white ticking.
Love the final look.
