Newly Painted Chairs

Thank you for those of you who left comments on my last post about prepping tips. I will definitely keep them in mind for future reference.

So, I only shared the shadow of a chair in my last post. I am done painting... Are you ready to see them?

I am going to be a tease and show you a before pictures of both chairs first.

I found this windsor chair at a local thrift store. I was looking for a windsor chair, boy was I lucky... They were a set of three for $40! I needed two more chairs for my dining table, so it was a perfect deal! Did you know that pretty good windsor chairs cost anywhere from a couple hundred to thousands (if it's a rare antique piece)?

I LOVE this one that I found at a moving sale for a steal (it was so long ago, I can't remember if I paid $5 or $15). I love the style of this chair; I found a similar style chair on Pottery Barns’ website for $300... Oh, I love thrifting. :)

I painted them both white. I know, I know, painting furniture white is kind of boring for some people, but I can't help it. That is the color I love! There is other furniture I am thinking about painting with "color", but who knows what will happen in the last minute.

So, I was trying to decide where to place them around the house. I think I will keep them like this for a while until I have a better idea.

or, maybe by the door?

It was a lot of work, but it is always so thrilling to see the end result. I keep staring at my dining table and chairs and trying to decide if I have enough energy left in me to give them a face lift.

Psst... I added some stuff to my etsy store. I know some of you told me that you are interested in purchasing my jewelries, please go check it out to see what's there. I might add more later on.
