Chair Parade

Chairs, shmairs!  I seem to currently have a plethora of chairs to work on.  I have not been able to find much else lately that is affordable at the thrift stores, but I have found a few chairs.  What to do with them is the question.

A friend and I were previously known as the chair ladies.  When we first started selling at Farmer's Market we painted among other things, chairs--ladybug and dragonfly chairs, cherry chairs, farm chairs, rooster chairs, fruit chairs, flower chairs.  

After a few years we realized chairs were a lot of work.  They were wobbly, spindley, full of nooks and crannies to sand and paint.  But, occasionally I still enjoy a good seat (I now know what to look for in a chair and avoid ones that need repair) and pick them up when they are inexpensive.  

I thought I would parade some of my past chairs--in hopes of inspiring you and myself!

Here are some more chairs that I don't think I ever blogged about:





So, as you can see the possibilities are pretty much endless.  Stay tuned to see what I come up with for my latest batch of chairs.
