This is the story of a chair...
In high school, I begged my dad to take me to a local thrift/junk store to buy a desk chair. I had a beautiful bedroom set growing up, but I thought it was a bit too perfect. I thought a pop of color brought in by a random piece of furniture would make it a bit cooler, because as a teenager, it was all about being cool.
I bought an old teacher chair, and of all the colors I could have chosen, I painted it bright, bright pink.
It followed me to college and then to graduate school. I wrote quite a few "A" papers at that chair. Then it made the move to our new home and has sat, in all its pink glory, in my office.
It is now going to be my craft table chair, but of course she needed a makeover.
Since the students were gone on spring break, I pulled it out back and primed it up.
Whoops, hopefully they mow the lawn soon.
The contrasting color for the craft table is Ohio Buckeye (how appropriate for an Ohio State Buckeye) so that's what I went with for the chair.
Doesn't she look so good with a fresh coat of paint? Just wait until you see the desk!
