4 Little Chairs

It's a sunny Thursday and we had some fun with 4 little chairs.  Found these chairs by the side of the road waiting to be put in some landfill.  Only 1 chair had a crack and was loose in certain spots, so my handy husband did a little gluing and puttering with it.  The other 3 were a little used looking and pretty solid.  So out came my paint cans and paint brush.  I'm always painting and trying to have a little fun with the pieces of whatever I have. Here are the before pictures:

I picked 4 colors that I thought would look good together and would fit into most households.  The colors were a soft yellow, a soft green, a pale, soft orange and a cream.  After they were painted I shabbied them up and added some porcelain numbers on the back of the chairs.  The numbers came from an old address sign and one of the numbers was  cracked.  We roughed up the back of the chairs and epoxied the numbers onto the backs.  I think the chairs turned out kinda of sweet, what do you think?  Until next time, Dianne........
