Shabby Chair & Screened Armoire

I'm still in a shabby state of mind! I crackled the (formerly) red mahogany chair below with an undercoat of black paint and paired it with a soft cream and sage checked fabric. At first I wasn't sure if that color combination would be too strong but I like it. The rusty wreath was inspired by Susanna of She makes the loveliest things! Thanks for sharing, Susanna!
This is the first time I've used screening in an armoire to imitate a chicken wire effect. They are pieces from a screen repair kit! It pays to keep your eyes open at the hardware store!
There are some very subtle baby pink details along the bottom and on the molding around the doors. Paperclips make great hangers. Click on the pics to see a little closer if you'd like :)
