Reminiscing …

For as long as I can remember I have always loved painting furniture.  Last year I decided to turn my hobby into a little business venture.  I call it my retirement fund :).

Yesterday was my daughter’s 21st birthday and I came across this photo that shows one of my early pieces.  I found this little bench that I painted, stenciled, and recovered for my office.  Dana’s little Pebbles hairdo is covering part of the stencil.  She had so much hair that we came up with this little “do” to keep it out of her face….poor baby.

The Chair – Before and Afters

A few weeks ago while photographing in Rustburg, I picked up a really cool chair, which although it was looking a bit worn and outdated, it was in great shape.  The cushion was in good condition and after a thorough cleaning I decided to just leave the pink velvet and work around it with a silver paint application.  I used Valspar Metallic paint and was very happy with the outcome although it took several applications to cover.

We will be adding the chair to our booth today.
