Beautiful craftsmanship! I’ve made two of them myself. They’re fun to build.

I used milk paint. The “mustard” yellow was actually just the first coat. This was followed by “salem” red and then “pitch” black. It’s currently being re-finished. My first paint job didn’t turn out a well as I hoped (first time mistakes). I will paint it these three colors again, followed with a linseed oil/mineral spirits blend.

Thanks for all the affirming comments!

Great looking chair – looks very delicate, yet sturdy – if that makes sense.

Delightful! I love Windsor chairs. It’s rare to see a painted one in the UK. The very early ones were painted but most have been stripped of and polished over the years.
