Just a quick post to get started here. I'm starting to really enjoy painted wood.
Especially like on these sweet dining chairs I reupholstered this winter.


I like the light, clean look.
Sometimes it's distressed and worn looking like this set I saw over at Dreamy Whites
Or not so distressed like this one at Kate Forman's

I'm going to try my hand at recreating the painted look of these antique painted chairs
using Miss Mustard Seed's technique which she offers Here and Here.
I happen to have an Eastlake style chair begging for a makeover.
I've also got a crazy notion to put outdoor fabric on it so I can put it on the front porch.
These fabrics from P. Collins, Ltd. are yummy.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
I'll even throw in a tutorial on how I make the double welt trim!
