make me pretty – the chair my class madeSeptember 19, 2012
Last weekend I taught my paint techniques workshop at the Visual Arts Center. Not only do we go over seven different paint techniques for furniture but we also re-do one piece of furniture as a class. I bring in a chair, fabric choices, and we choose a paint color, wether or not to distress, and what type of glaze or antiquing to do. This is a lot of decisions to make by group vote and there were ten people in the class this time. There is so much potential for this experiment to go terribly wrong but somehow it always works out.
So here is the chair I brought in for my class, it was $4 at a yard sale in my neighborhood.
And the chair after. I think my class did an excellent job. I hope they had a good time – I know I did!
