Chair history: Purchased for $2 at a garage sale in Nebraska, 1992. I used tapestry to re-cover the seat at that time and it sat in the entry hall at our last house for years (the sunlight fading the tapestry). It has had no use now for several years except extra seating for large family dinners.
But yesterday afternoon, I got out a can of orange paint I bought 5 years ago for $1 in the mis-mixed paints at Home Depot. I also came across a couple of candle holders from the “Under the Tuscan Sun” days when my “altar” was covered in candles and crosses (and quite cozy and romantic). Orange paint, people!
A change is coming. Watch for it!
BTW: My daughter Stephanie is the one who told me to take a “before” picture. Otherwise, as you can see, I was tearing right in! I am glad she told me that!
