Anyway, while looking through some of the pictures I took last week, I noticed this one:
...and I realized that I never posted about this Bentwood Chair that I had picked up at Goodwill this summer for $2.99. It originally was stained with a Cherry finish and one of the back pieces was broken. Bill fixed the broken piece, and I got out my red spray paint. Just as I was finishing the last coat of red paint, I came across this post from Jenny at Little Green Notebook that included this image:
I love the look of 'dipped' furniture legs. I had the perfect piece to try it out on. I picked up a sample jar of turquoise blue paint and taped off the bottom of the legs at the height of about 4 inches.
(I spray primed the legs first, hence the garbage bag.) I originally posted the above image in October, when our garage was a furniture refinishing factory. It's funny to look back at that post now! It seems like so long ago.
Here is the finished chair:
I think she's just adorable. I wish I had a whole collection of Bentwood chairs so I could try out different color combinations. This red chair looks particularly festive in our red, green and white great room right now. I have no idea where it will live on a more permanent basis...we shall see:).
Stay tuned for more Christmas posts this week and perhaps even an updated Charm's Room post:)!
