In the spirit of lifelong learning I have begun a part-time course in Upholstery. Well, something had to be done about all those poorly chairs I have accumulated and I certainly wasn't going to pay someone else to do it! I chose this little nursing chair for my first project. Something I might complete in a term so that I don't lose enthusiasm!
I thought I had enrolled on a beginners class but quickly realised that all of the other 'student's had been attending the rolling course for many years and were working on some beautiful restoration projects of quite breathtaking complexity. But still I decided to stick to my simple starter project. I removed the grotty coverings and sanded off all the cracked polish. All the other work in the class is being restored to original condition, but we already have lots of traditional furniture at home, so I decided upon a change....
... and I painted it pink. Or should I say "I painted it PINK!!!!!"
I hadn't expected it to be quite so bright, but it makes me smile every time I look at it!
So, today I took my little pink project along to class. I was late and the only free bench was right at the front. Well, amongst all the brown wax and polish, it was certainly a show stopper..... I'm not sure that was in a good way... but Hey! It's my chair and I love it!
I just need to persuade hubby that he can live with that shade of pink and I might be allowed to bring it home again!
Hope you're all having a lovely week. t.x
