UPDATE: This chair sold on 9/6/13!
I picked up this chair for $2.00. That's right. $2.00! But boy was it in bad shape...
Here's a peek:
random paint splotches
a dog had it's way with both rocker sides
and it was completely wobbly
it wasn't even safe enough to be a time-out chair
I had to take the entire thing apart
(with my dad's help, of course)
a few screws and some wood glue later, and it was back together
I sanded it.
And kilzed it.
And sanded it some more.
The spindles were torture to paint.
I painted it.
Then sanded it.
Then painted it some more.
With all these imperfections, it was never going to look like a "brand new" chair again, so I resorted to Miss Mustard Seed's Antiquing Wax to "celebrate" all the imperfections.
Have you tried this stuff yet? No?

The wax "hugs" it in all the right places. :)
I love this little tomato red chair. So does Ivy. :) But I can't keep hoarding everything in our 700 sq ft cottage. It needs a home. If you're local, you can see the craigslist posting here. Selling it for $70. After all the love put into it, that's a steal!
