Of course I worked hard too, and earned my money with faux finishes, painting walls, painting and staining unfinished furniture, sewing valances, that sort of thing. A few weeks ago she found these chairs I had in the basement I bought to recover and put in the shop...when I had a shop, but never got around to it. She bought them from me and I agreed to recover them as part of the price. (She drives a hard bargain, yessiree).
I love chairs and have spent years buying old ones no one loved anymore and making them into new ones that someone else could love. Depending on the chair, sometimes I would paint them with a decorative motif and sometimes I would paint and skirt them. Often times I combined the two and painted, skirted and then painted a motif on the fabric. This chair is just skirted. We loved the old paint finish so much and it went perfect in the room it was planned for we left it alone.
Didn't it turn out pretty in her red painted breezeway! So feminine and flirty!We're just about to the end now. I think....oh, wait, she wants me to recover the lampshade on that desk, oh and yeah, we do have another chair just like this one she wants done for her bedroom. And then the other night she did call all excited because she finally figured out what she wanted to do to the old fireplace mantel she bought off me...she wants me to paint roses and vines and leaves...... before Christmas...........
Well, we'll get there yet.......I think. ;-)
