My Little Chair Redo


Hi everyone!  I have to say that …..

“It's so hot that I have found out (the hard way) that my seat belt buckle could be used as a branding iron!”    I just got back from going into town and the thermostat said 115!!!  We are staying inside today!  And to top it off, I hurt my shoulder somehow.  Possibly a rotator cuff type of injury.  It was probably because I had picked up some heavy pine trees to plant.  My shoulder seems swollen compared to my other shoulder that does not hurt.  ugh  I am having to take Advil every four hours.  If it does not get better, I may have to go to the E.R. 


I love this little makeover.  I applied primer first and then spray painted it white.  After the paint dried, I used glaze to antique it.  I love the shabby look. 



I searched thru all of my photos to show you what the chair used to look like before.  Aaah, I love this picture.   My fall porch from last year. :)  Anyway, the chair used to be black and I love the way it looks in this photo. 


But for spring and summer, I decided to painted it white. 


I’m going to just sit inside my home and drink some iced cold tea.  Hoping that our weather will cool down a little bit soon.

OH Sandra, it's 110 to 112 here, so I do understand. I love your chair, and it is gorgeous black or white. Love the cute toolbox you have sitting on it. Great makeover. Hope the shoulder gets a little better. Hugs, Marty

I like your pretty porch vignette.
Is it a dry heat, or is it humid where you are. If it was 115 here and the humidity we have, it would dangerous to go outside.
Stay in, stay cool and enjoy your weekend. :D

Oh, Sandra! I'm so sorry to hear you've hurt your shoulder! I pray it will get better and you won't have to go to the ER! I hate that place! I know it's needed though.
Now your chair is so precious! You just know how to make things pretty!
Be a sweetie,

How cute! I wouldn't have even thought to paint it since it looks so good black! You did a great job of "remaking" it, though. Have a wonderful weekend! Sandi

Pretty! I love what you did to it. I sure hope your shoulder gets to feeling better. 115 degrees? Yikes. I thought our 90 degrees was a killer.
