The problem was that I ALREADY had something there! A chase longue (my husband said that's the correct spelling). Beautiful, comfortable... but too big for the space.
So finally, after keeping the chairs in other rooms for a while, they were painted TODAY!!!
And the chase longue advertised on Craigslist!!!
My friend Christine came to watch me paint, and helped me also! Nobody escapes, HAHAHA!
So we chatted and drank tea and painted away!!!
In the evening I actually found the energy (NOT - but I had to finish) to paint the other one.
Tomorrow, at daylight, I will show both of them side by side, probably with another table in the middle. I don't like to put "painted" with "painted". I am thinking I will make some changes here and bring an old but beautiful little table to place between the chairs.
Here they are!!!
First I painted it Aubusson Blue, from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. Then I painted Old White. Distressed a bit.
The one on the left is a "before"!
I have been trying to make my house brighter, everything here is brown...
So pretty all dressed up!!!
Remember the blanket my friend brought from Portland?
