Happy Monday!!! I hope all of you had a fabulous, relaxing weekend.
My bathroom is finished being tiled!! Woohoo! It is “amazingly amazing”. Brandon (my s-in-law) did a great job and put up with me changing just a few little tiny things…like the back splash on the back of the vanity (I know he was muttering under his breath…something about a m-in-law who is a pain in the %@#*) :-). I had planned on showing pictures, but I think I’ll keep you in suspense until it’s completely done and do a big UNVEILING. Then you will want to keep coming back! ha! Just kidding (about the coming back…but I would like that).
So here is a little red chair that I had so much fun re-doing. I got 2 of these chairs for $14.50 at AMVets – $7.25 each! I did them both different, and will be done with the 2nd one next week.
I apologize for these pics in advance. Not my best shots…I can’t do anything under pressure. I was in a hurry…as usual it seems these days…me always fighting the clock….that will be a different post that will be filed under RAMBLINGS. Ha!
Here is what the chair looked like before:
And here is the After:
What do you think? Love the Red?
Here is a few up close and personals 🙂
I wiped down the chairs, filled in a few cracks with a wood filler, sanded, and painted the chair with Annie Sloan’s Emperor’s Silk (red). It took 3 coats to cover it thoroughly (you know how that red is…and Annie’s is no different). Next, I distressed (didn’t do a lot of it) and then applied clear wax, buffed and applied a very light coat of dark wax. Still needs to be buffed, but wanted the waxes to get good and hard.
What am I going to do with it? I have no idea. Perhaps sell it. It’s gonna be hard to get rid of.
I want to ask everyone a quick question – I saw a Union Jack dresser on someone’s blog but it was done in an olive green, cream colors, maybe brown? Does anyone remember seeing it? Please email me or comment to me if you know. Thank you!
Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow to see the highlights I will be posting from last week’s #1 Linky Party. Can’t wait to see what everyone shares at this weeks #2 Linky Party starting tomorrow (Tuesday) at “Turning the Daunting into the Do-able” right here on Project Queen.
