Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
My daugher was a big part of the pick up. As I was driving, she was looking out the window when suddenly she screeched, you parents know the sound of excited children right? It was one of those sounds.
She couldn't get the words out fast enough. There were chairs on the side of the road (large item garbage was the next day and these were being tossed)
Did you see the size of those upholstery nails? Unreal!
So after loading the couch, unloading the couch and then going back for the chairs....it was dark and these were the only pics I got.
They were solid and I knew I could do something with them.
When ripping apart 6 chairs, it's best to take your time. Do a bit then break and do something else. This way you are not tempted to toss the whole pile onto the fire pit and douse it with gasoline.
Then finish it all in one last push...
And come up with this.
Three colours (since they sold before I could paint or stain, new owners picked what they wanted)
They are going to look fabulous in their new home.
I can't wait for my client to come see them in person. Just in time for our Canadian Thanksgiving!
Lesson in this....listen when your kids screech, and never pass up a great deal!
