Hello and Happy Spring (haha! it is actually snowing right now in TN) I finished the misfits last week, but couldn't get it together to write a blog post until now. I was on sick boy duty and the Mr. was out of town all week, so blogging wasn't in the cards. But, now the Mr is back (and is sick) and the boy is well, so I thought I could fit it in today.
Basically, I wanted all these chairs to look as they had been found *as is* The only one that I didn't touch is that sweet black and white gal (her paint is chippy and showing green too!)
This is the formerly green girl. I painted her a thick coat of a soft white paint and hope she chips eventually. I didn't want to distress her... just let her age here and there.
This was the au natural beauty.... I painted her with a warmer white and distressed her. Since she was so similar to the last one that I had already painted in the grey, I gave her a little something extra...
Maybe it is the desire to paint eggs, but I thought some soft blue stripes would be perfect.
This is the grey one... I painted her a mix of the soft white and a pale, pale grey that I call Mora Clock to make her sort of white, not quite grey.
If you have been reading my posts for awhile and have a steel trap memory, you will notice that this table is the table I originally used in my studio that is now a playroom. I also changed out the curtains here and they were too short. I have had these linen panels since college and I have always held onto them in case I ever moved into a place with really low ceilings again.
What to do, what to do??
I machine sewed a little band with some leftover linen from another project and then did a quick and casual blanket stitch along them.
So I have a completely different breakfast nook and really spent very little on it. I really like moving stuff I have to new places.
Here are a few other views of this little nook over the past 7 years....
bye for now~
