Remember this chair that I did a few weeks ago?
Well, the lady who bought it ended up wanting a few more done in exactly the same manner.
I hopefully have found a local source for coffee bags.
I painted these with Cece Caldwell paint in Vermont Slate. Then, when I waxed them, I added some black paint into the wax, to darken them down a tad.
I had fun doing the seats on these. No two are alike.
They all had really great legs, too.
And, on a completely different subject, I went to a yard sale on Friday. I know, big surprise right? Anyways, this was quite the sale. The guy had quite a lot of furniture. I was checking out a pair of nightstands, and he came over to talk to me. I mentioned that they would need a lot of work, hoping of course to get him to lower the price. Well, it turns out he had just refinished them. Talk about putting my foot in my mouth! They were absolutely horrible, you could hardly open the drawers, there was so much paint gooped up on them. Silver and black streaks all over them, and they were supposed to be "distressed". I so wish I had a picture of them to share their awfulness!
I did buy two dresser from him, though. This first one I bought only for the glass knobs that it came with.
You're probably thinking that doesn't look too bad. Wait until you get a close up of the drawer!
Youch! He had just finished this one! I won't be redoing this one. There is just way too much paint gooped on and dripping all over it to be worth my time. Ah well, the knobs were totally worth the price. You'll be seeing them again soon. They are going to be put on a dresser I am painting black for my sister-in-law.
And I also bought this dresser to redo.
Thankfully, he was selling it "as is". Meaning he hadn't touched it yet! (What a relief!)
