One new chair

gail1055November 20, 2007

Just finished a chair for a friend. We found it in the garbage. She asked me to paint it for her. I had to clean it up and glue it back together but it turned our ok. You have to imagine a wicker basket of flowers in the seat. She has it sitting outside your door. Gail

Oh my gosh that's just as cute as it can be! I'll bet she just adores it. What a good friend you are.

How did you do that beautiful lettering?

So pretty! I love Trash to Treasure projects. I'm thinking you should do a book of transformed chairs! ha I know your friend is just loving this. I am imagining some beautiful red and pink geraniums in the seat! It's lovely! ~Anj

Anj is right about the book, your chairs look better than some I have seen in books. Maybe you should submit some pics to Susan Schwee Publishing. She has helped lots of painters get published. Just a thought. Luvs

A book...wow! You folks are too kind. I'm way too modest for that. I just have fun taking an old chair and seeing what I can turn it into. It's a real thrill when someone loves what I do. Thanks for your compliments. Gail

Wonderful painting job on the chair Gail, it's fantastic. It's going to make a lovely planter chair. I'm sure your friend just loves it.

I wish I could paint like that - makes my stuff look like my cat did it! LOL.
Very gorgeous chair, but I am quite disappointed as you said it was outside my door, when I went to look, alas it wasn't there...
maybe you meant the back door - I'll go check.
