Have a seat and rest a while....before and after.

These three seats all have great sentimental value. The small chair is one from Bob's mom's kindergarten. Many, many Andalusia children have sat in this seat. The bench in the middle was the one my mom used at her sewing machine. She spent many, many hours here sewing clothes for me. The stool is one she had in her recent sewing area. 

I have painted these chairs many times over the past years. This is really by far my  favorite. I sprayed the chair with a bright orange Krylon paint. I then dry brushed it with Sherwin Williams paint in Parakeet. I just love it!. I have two of these and they sit on my patio holding my herbs. 

I ended up painting this stool twice. Once with Chateau Grey, ASCP. I then added a gold wax stencil to the top. It just wasn't happening for me. So I just wiped off the gold with mineral spirits and then painted it with a great color, Cooled Blue by SW. I think it may need some polka dots or something!  

 The bench got two coats of Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Provence. I then gave it two coats of clear wax. I just had to add the stencil, my mom stenciled everything! 

Here is a sneak peek of one of the items I brought back from my mom's this weekend. It is a small chest the size of a night stand. It is a very inexpensive piece, probably particle board. It has some interesting details so it will be fun
 to see what I can do with it!

Thanks for visiting. Y'all come back now, ya hear?

Pretty as always! Can't wait to see what you do with the chest.
