the lavendar chairs


Time has come to reveal the two arm chairs in all their lavendar glory - the one formerly known as the moo chair has been glimpsed before. And the lavendar paint has found its way to covering some smaller projects here and there, such as the bookshelf and a couple of wee shelves.


Now, behold the moo chair a few months after repainting. Pleased with it in all its simplicity am I.


And here is moo chair's adirondack friend, thought it would be neat to paint it stripey. From bland in plain pine to lavendar - violet awesomeness, just seeing it in living room makes me happy.

Completing these two chair-projects I've found myself very much in painting mojo. Seeing old worn, torn, drab furniture turning into fab colourfulness makes me feeling very accomplished somehow. And it is relaxing. As well as addictive.

Am now working on a few stools and chairs - some of them will have the most gorgeous new covers too, which make me all giddy just thinking about - and have plans for old, dark bookshelves which I hope to turn into apple green loveliness during summer holidays.

I'm even seriously thinking about repainting the kitchen. Because I should be able to do that myself. Reasonably accomplished in painting as I am when I decide to put that colourful brush forward.

They are just beautiful. I hope your "Painting mojo" continues for some time yet.

I love the chairs! They do indeed look happy and full of joy. The lace table cloth is also quite pretty. There really is something about a fresh coat of paint to brighten things up.

Miss P, the chairs are sweet. I have a wood set of things in bedroom, and like you are feeling the uge for paint too.

Have a nice weekend.

thank you, purest green! and i hope so too.

thanks, alex! it's ages since i painted furniture or put new covers on them, it's so fun and therapeutical, makes one feel very accomplished somehow.

julie, oh i do hope you find time and inspiration to oaint that set, it will be lovely i'm sure!

thanks, afos! i'm glad they turned out like they did, chosing paint in a bucket isn't like chosing yarn, it rarely is the same on the test-tags as it is when painted on something else...
