I've been doin' a lot of junkin' lately. I call it "junkin'" because if there's a yard sale I won't stop unless it looks like there is a lot of junk with the potential of being cheap and restorable. Then, I will stop and ask the kids, "wanna go junkin' with me?!" and they all get excited and scream "yes" looking as giddy as I feel while they leap from the car wondering what kind of goods they themselves can make off with. Anywhere I can find something with potential, I'll stop and check out. Yard sales, Thrift stores, trash bins (yes I'm humble enough to watch those too), recycle centers, even yard waste places where we drop off our truckloads of debris. A few weeks ago I found this little deal at a yard sale:
For TWO DOLLARS !
Two Dollars folks!! So sincerely, I picked it up and didn't let it out of my grasp for the rest of sale browsing.
I paid the lady and took that baby home and got busy.
First I gave it a good coat of Burnt Sienna Acrylic paint from my tole painting days stash:
Better already, Eh!
Then a coat of the Metallic Champagne I must have gotten for another idea ( I'm sure I never actually created) since it's that pretty shimmery looking paint I'm always hoping to use on a lucky project:
Then I painted the top in just the Opaique look. I was origionally going to cover it and decided to paint it before doing so. I'm not much for the look of these kind of chairs usually.
I really like the way it turned out. AND, as for now. . .
