It was one week ago today that my daughter picked up this chair from the antique store that it was holding it for me . This is the second chair that I was telling you about .
I like pink . But this was all wrong . Plus she was a little warn .
So I took all the upholstery off . See that rolled stuff around the edge ? It just disintegrated in my hands , and I have had allergy problems ever since . Look at the fabric that was separating the padding from the springs .
Once I got her all striped down and cleaned up I started painting her.
Pretty details .
I distressed and waxed her , then started dressing her back up.
I did the CitraSolv method again.
Graphic from the Graphic Fairy .
Peeking to see if it transferred right.
The transfer before the fabric pin.
Just a little less faded looking . Although that faded look looks great on some things .
Here she is all finished !
And sitting in the living room with her sister .
Do you like them ? I’m just tickled freaky about them .
I sure wish that TV had a frenchy white frame around it !
One last picture for fun.
I just thought it was pretty the way the light came through the lace panels and accented the angel .
Okay , now it’s on to the next project ! Have a great week !
