This Chair That Chair

In the process of painting our office door red (a whim, really), which includes priming the door and waiting 24 hours before it dries, I decided to paint our weathered kitchen chair.

This was another of Daniel’s $10 front yard sale finds, and the best thing is that it probably did live in the front yard for a while and it needed no sanding or other prep to make the paint stick. Because the paint went on so easy, I opted for one thin coat, so you can still see the wood grain. Depending on how you look at it, this is both easier and harder than a thicker coat. Easier because it takes less time. Harder because you can’t afford stroke lines. Each section has to be painted carefully so lines don’t infringe on each other. Sounds cryptic unless you try it.

Now it’s very fancy.
