My mom is the best! Whenever I go down for a trip she lets me refinish something, decorate something, or paint something… and it’s generally a piece of furniture!
I usually suggest what we should change… she says, “Really?” Followed by and excited, “Ok!” We can’t tell dad beforehand because he’s nervous about change, but he almost always comes around and loves it when it’s done! Oh how I love that man!
Mom’s patience with my furniture addiction has helped develop my love of decor, and I’m forever grateful for the thousands of lessons she’s taught me!!
Here’s the before on a little chair we did:
I love how it turned out!
Side Note: I found another chair exactly like this at a yard sale a few months ago. The owner had painted it silver with a mauve cushion and it looked terrible! She wanted $120. I would love one for my own home, but just couldn’t justify that price on something I’d have to refinish… sigh! I’ll continue my search.
Here it is staged next to another piece I love at mom’s house! She uses the hutch for vintage quilts. So fun!
