A Regal Pair

Wednesday, 11 May 2011

Back in March, I unknowingly came up with a great new finish that I fell in love with. It's so easy too...which makes it even better. The first piece with this finish was this table. It sold at my friend's shop the first day she put it out on the floor. I was shocked...but super happy!

So when that same friend brought me these chairs to paint, she thought that same finish should be used.

They (yes, they...there are two, but I didn't "before" both of them) had obviously seen better days, but had tons of potential.

Enter my father-in-law. This man is brilliant. One of the chairs was missing a bottom support, so he used the other chair as a template and cut out a support with his jigsaw. Fine...no big deal, right? He then proceeded to take apart the chairs and pull of about three POUNDS of hardware from them. Nails, screws, L-brackets...anything that could be added to just keep the chairs together. I was shocked when he brought me the hardware to show me. They even felt lighter! And they looked better too!

Anyway, after 3 coats of dry brushing and some ebony stain, here they are! What a pair!!
