Wow, it has been a while. The winter was extremely difficult, and I had no place to do any work! Spring is here, and summer i’m going to go nuts doing work! It was also my first year of teaching, and that proved to be quite difficult to do both.
Anywayyyyy. I completed this really awesome custom order. My client wanted to spice up her dining area. She had a table with a bench on one side, and wanted chairs around the table to be all different. There were five dining chairs, each one a different color, and we mixed and matched patterns. The sixth chair will be used for a side chair.
My client went to a salvage/antique shop and picked a bunch of different chairs. They were covered in lacquer, and took forever to sand down. Here is one of them prepped and ready to go!
When I was ready to paint, I came home one day, and found my paint sprayer hose chews, and when I took a closer look I saw that the cord had been chewed. My lovely dog Prima must have had a meltdown because she chewed it up! Good thing it wasn’t plugged in. The shoe is in there just for good measure.
So I had to buy a new paint sprayer, which set me back a bit. I decided to try a new brand- Black & Decker, and I actually really like it.
It allows me to have a lot more control over the flow of paint, it is super easy to clean, and the price was on the lower end of sprayers.
Each chair needed a new piece of wood for the seat, new foam, and obviously upholstered.
Once assembled, here is how they came out, pretty cool I think! Here is the purple chair:
Here is the yellow chair:
Here is the orange chair:
Here is the green chair:
Turned out to be a very cool collection. I can’t wait to see what it looks like at her kitchen table!
