I just finished a chair. I call it my red resting chair. First let me show you a before picture. It's your basic wood chair, no fancy carvings or ornate woodwork, just a wood chair. This is the only picture that I could find & it's not the best, but you get the idea.....don't ya? The minnow baskets that are sitting on it will be featured in another post.......(I'm almost done with them).
I painted the chair Emperor's Silk (chalk paint again, no surprise there) waxed it, and then beat it up a little. I wanted it to look like it's always been that color. I hand painted the bible phrase "come with me by yourselves to a quiet place & get some rest". I was going to use my Silhouette & be all fancy & impeccable but I was going for a different look. I wanted it to look like the writing was put on it a long time ago by someone, not mass produced & perfect. Maybe I should make up a story about it being from an old school & some teacher wrote that on there.....kinda like an old timey "time-out chair"?? Anyway what do you guys think?
