This tiny vintage treasure was desperate for a facelift. I spotted it at a local antiques shop, dusty and overlooked in the corner with the spider webs. It had some rough bits, a loose rung and chipped paint but was otherwise very sturdy. Here is a side-by-side of before and after:
She was a little rough around the edges.
Stella and I went to work on this little orphan chair. We got paint, sandpaper and brushes at Ace Hardware. Stella picked the color and what a surprise she chose pink. Italiano Rose, to be more specific. My job was sanding and smoothing the old paint and scraggly parts.
I poured some paint on a paper plate and handed Stella the brush. She attacked the chair with gusto and painted herself thoroughly. Oh, and she was buck naked. It’s the only way to do a good job. Truth.
Isn’t she pretty in pink? We shall call her Molly.
Love doing projects like this with my Pickle. She is my DIY wingman
