the scarf I posted yesterday
was lying on an old chair in a few of the pictures
a chair we already sanded at that time, ready to be painted
last weekend was very sunny and we were ready to work on our six wooden kitchen chairs
out came the sand paper, out came the paint
and on we went, the husband and me ~ so much fun !
six chairs we collected in the nine months we have been living in Canada
quite a catch if I may say so myself
they are all 'old' or vintage or may be even close to antique
and I like them in their own style, with their own stories : who has been using them ? in what kitchen ?
this is actually a teasing post, because none of the chairs is finished yet
they will all get a minimum of 3 layers of paint so we will be busy with them for a while
and you have to wait a little longer before I post a real 'tadaaa'
but... I am, and we are, very satisfied with the results so far
as you can see the sun was so bright, I was not even able to paint outside, it had to happen in the garage
in the shade and out of the wind
but what a lovely and perfect weekend to do so
more about the colors I choose and more pictures soon...
are you into re-doing furniture at all ?
