My painted chair has made a small stir, and has been getting quite a bit of attention. And lots of people were a bit disappointed that there was no ‘before’ pic. Honestly, I didn’t think I had a ‘before’ photo of it. When I put the post together I didn’t see one and was sure I had forgotten to take one. Then when I kept getting comments from people wanting to see the before I decided to do a bit of digging through my photo files to see if perhaps I did have one somewhere.
And I did. I almost didn’t but I did. You can see here that I had already started painting it when I snapped this quick shot. So this is for all of you who wanted to see the before. And I apologize for not adding it to the original post the first time around! I’ve added it to that post now too and you can see it and all the great beauty shots here.
And just a reminder of what it looks like now. I just can’t say how much I love how this turned out. And it is for sale – if you are interested it’s $45. I do have a friend who is contemplating buying it – I kind of hope she does – I’d love to see it go to someone I know. And she lives close so I could always go see it if I got to missing it 😉
Some other fun news – I’m going to be co-hosting a Link Party that starts at 4:00PST this afternoon! I’m excited and I’d love to have you come link up with me and these great gals – Jaime at Crafty Scrappy Happy, Lucy at Craftberry Bush, and Taryn at Design Diapers and Dining. I’ve followed all three of these great gals for a long time now. They are all so wonderful. Jaime is the one who painted her brick wall and that was the inspiration that convinced my Mom to let me paint her brick fireplace. And she just had a new baby! I’ve seen some pics on facebook and I’m eagerly looking forward to seeing a blog update!
So go meet these ladies, and please come back this afternoon to link up – I’ll be picking features that will be on all our blogs on Sunday!
