make me pretty – chair setNovember 8, 2010
I am very lucky that my husband is super supportive of my
hobby obsession business. He is always looking out for me – handing out my business cards, watching the kids so I can get some work done and sitting in the car while I stop by every yard sale we happen to drive past. He even picked up these chairs for me – he spotted them at a yard sale when I was out of town and thought I might like them.
First I would needed to lighten them up – they look almost medieval! But with all of the intricate details they are begging to be distressed. There was some fabric I had been craving for months – here was the perfect excuse to buy it!
I painted the chairs a light mustard color then distressed them and covered them with a coat of brown stain which makes them almost look glazed and adds a real depth to the paint.
And I have to show you this picture of my new cutie, Emerson Riley, with his eyes open! love!
