Before I tell you about my awesome chairs ;) I'm excited to share that I am being featured at Must love Junk all day today! Head over and visit me there as well. I love Susan's blog, so if you've never been there, you must click over (after this post of course...haha!). For those of you that are regulars, you will probably recognize her from the Summer Home tour series HERE.
Now, on to my latest completed project.
Over a year ago I found these chairs kicked to the curb up the street. They had a "Free" sign attached to them leaving no room to question whether the owners wanted them taken away. I drove by them a few times in my daily travels back and forth. At first I thought I didn't need any more chairs. I'm finding I have an obsession of sorts. So I tried to ignore them. I found myself mentally placing them in various parts of our house until I finally couldn't stand it anymore. I drove up the street in the dark, shoved them in the car, and drove home, finally relieving myself of the torment of just thinking about them.
I put them in our mud room knowing that if they were in there I would work on them right away. This is an easy project after all, so they should be done in a jiffy, right? Not so. I simply had too many other things that needed to be done first. I was horrified when we had company and my family put them at the table in an effort to provide more seating. YIKES! They were so disgusting!!
I topped them with 3 coats of satin acrylic polyurethane.
I love a project that not only turns out the way you envisioned, but even better, don't you?
Tea for Two anyone?!
