I finished another chair. Not quite sure where I'm going to keep it for now. I'm running out of space. The funny thing is that I really like how this one turned out. I was planning on fixing it up & selling it but now I'm not so sure. If I kept it where would it go? I'm just going to have to figure something out or sell it, like I originally planned.
|before: dark, dreary & dirty :(|
I found this one way in the back corner of a resale/thrift shop. It was full of cob webs & looked like it hadn't been touched in years. Besides being covered in an ugly & now dirty fabric, it looked like it was in pretty good shape. When I asked about it the sales lady said it was half off so of course it came home with me. Never mind the fact that I had already picked out two old windows,some shutters & a lot of other small miscellaneous items. Normally this wouldn't be a problem if I had brought the family truckster (aka the van) but nooooo I had the beetle. All I can say is thankfully the car is a convertible & the weather was nice. Any way here she is after I painted her with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Old White. Then I used some clear wax,"beat her up" a little & gave her some brand spankin' new clothes. What do you guys think? She's been "lightened up a bit, don't ya think? :)
