GIVE ME THE GOODS MONDAY
Thanks, Amber and co-hostesses for a fun party.
Two kids oak school chairs that had been up in the attic for a long time ... no seats ... no problem.
I took some chair webbing ... taped off the black stripes with green Duck tape and painted the outside edges. Tape stuck really good, no bleed and used it over and over again.
... they would be perfect with this sweet little table that I bought at a garage sale for $2.00 ... (sorry no before of the table)
Table needed some repair and sanding ... and found aqua paint under the creamy white. I gathered up several colors of paint to mix to try to match the aqua. Got pretty close. (see glob of paint).
Oak chairs had a lot of texture, so I gave a light coat of paint, letting some of the wood grain show. Washing down with a damp cloth did the trick on giving the paint the time-worn look. Used Min-wax clear wax, then rubbed with Mix-wax Provincial stain and finished up with the clear wax.
I painted the rings on the legs and did not stain them, so they are a brighter aqua. I may stain them to match the color of the chairs.
I wove the webbing; tacking them to the rungs. Webbing was too wide to do a basket weave, but it will work like it is.
Thanks for the visit ... love your comments.
