31 Days: The Chair
A few months ago, I painted a wingback chair. The chair looked fantastic, but I decided two weeks ago to paint the legs white. I took the chair outside, wrapped it lovingly in trash bags, taped everything off, and placed it on a drop cloth.
I sprayed the legs with two light coats of glossy white and was stoked, it looked great.
Until a gigantic gust of wind blew the drop cloth UP and it STUCK to the legs of the chair because yeah, they weren’t dry.
I was filled with so much unhealthy anger towards Mother Nature that it was borderline frightening. I dragged that stupid chair inside and left it in all its glory.
Glory=covered in a few trash bags and half sanded legs. It has been in my living room like this ever since. And we have actually been sitting on it, apparently the rustling of the weird redneck slipcover doesn’t bother us one bit.
Yesterday was a very nice day, so I brought out my paint and wrapped the chair back up.
Mother Nature decided to take it easy on me and there was no wind. I glossied (it’s a word) those legs right up.
I’m letting the legs dry thoroughly before I move it back inside and the chair is currently on my porch. Baby steps, y’all.
For 31 days, I’m tackling the Hot Mess. Read all about it here.
