Okay, I may have a slight problem. You see I love buying chairs, and not just any chairs. The ones that (cough) you find driving around your neighbourhood at hard rubbish time, or the ones you see in Op Shop and have grand plans for. Worst of all, the ones you see refurbished and all pretty on someone elses' blog and think 'I saw a chair like that in the Op Shop the other day, and I could totally do what they did'.
Case in point.
I saw this chair and then read this post. Well of course I had to go back and get the chair.
Now I just need to work out what I want to recover mine in.
Stamp on the bottom of the chair. Look familiar to anyone?
I got this rocking chair a couple of years ago.
It has nearly been all sanded back but needs a little gluing and about 50 tiny little tacks pulled out of it. Just imagine it stained and then recovered with some Rouenneries Roche stripe, and three or four quilts sitting, folded up on it.
This chair may be the bane of my existence. I have spent days and days electric sanding it back and have got nowhere. I think it may have been a theater prop as it has layers and layers of gold paint. Still have not decided what I am doing with this one in terms of colour or fabric.
I also have four matching chairs under the house hiding as well.
So please next time you see me out, do not let me near your hard rubbish or Op Shop.
(Unless of course you have a really nice chair!)
