Garden and Chair

Not a lot of Quilting the last few days.  The weather has been great and the garden has been calling my name… are some pictures (click pictures to enlarge)

I went to a flea market this morning and found a chair for ten dollars .


It is the perfect size for  use at the sewing machine but not so great with that red paint.

The thought of stripping the paint didn’t excite me so I decided to paint it.    First yellow paint.


Next stain


The dark Gel Stain over the yellow paint makes a wood look



I need to give it a touch up in a few spots then it will get a few coats of amber shellac.

Happy Quilting

    your projects just march along….. if I found a chair at flea market this morning…. it would still be red on the fourth of July.

  3. Your garden is so lovely and the chair is great! Hope it is comfortable! But for $10, who cares. Like what you did to it!

    Wow. That’s a great trick. I’ve never seen that before. Beautiful.

    Love your plants. The chair is neat, I would have probably left it red. With a quilted cushion, it will be perfect. What no pictures of Teddy! How could you not include that little character.

    The garden is awesome! My favorite in this group of garden photos is the bleeding hearts. The variety of colors is incredible. Nice find on the chair.

    It’ll be so nice to have a roll around chair to go between all the machines!
    The garden is looking wonderful as well.

    Great decorating hack!! I wouldnt have thought stain would stick well over paint, but I never tried to find out! It looks amazing!
