How does everyone get their paint so nice and smooth on all of their “before and afters”? I’m eyeing an old secretary (desk, that is) of mine…

i LOOOOVE these chair stories. they make me daydream when i should be working. makes me think of chaircouture, but even better because you don’t need oodles of $ and celestrial professional skills….

I think Theresa must live in Grosse Pointe. Have I seen her around somewhere? We Pointers are famous for embracing the pink and green whilst sipping our cocktails at the club. :)

I’ve done something similar with old wooden chairs before as well. The problem is, in spite of multiple gluing sessions, they always end up becoming rickety. Any suggestions?

I am loving this site the more and more I visit. I just love all the new ideas that I have managed to pick up from you. Like this chair for example, not that I would use that vibrant green but it sure does make a statement.
