Today is a day that was made for cuddling on the couch with the kids, drinking cocoa and watching movies, because outside it looks like this:
On a side note I picked up a chair yesterday and finished it last night, I was in such a furry to get it done that there are no before pics. You'll also have to excuse these pics I have no place left to stage my furniture as we have new flooring stacked all over the house, and I'm too lazy to even throw a cushion on this chair or straighten the curtain... so it all looks a little blah, but use your imaginations friends because soon (being anytime between now and Christmas) I will have new floors and a plethora of staging grounds - a plethora I say!
This is one big, solid chair and is actually really comfortable considering there is no padding. The chair was already painted black but it had about a zillion drips that needed to be forcibly removed. Once that was done I over painted it with grey homemade chalk paint and then distressed it within an inch of its life. Finally I waxed and buffed it and called it done. I love it, but reason tells me I cannot keep it so it will go to my spot at the Old Strathcona Antique Mall, booth 202. Now considering the snow storm and condition of the roads I don't expect to have it there until Friday...
Oh and check out my newest project care of Holly from in the funlane who was having a blogorage sale, what a great idea, how could i resist?
