i knew that i wanted this year's chair to be pink and my overall theme would be dream. i still love the American Family Insurance #longlivedreams poem....love it and wanted to use that poem.
the piece under the longlivedreams shows how my "wash" of the chair looks- i did a hot pink "wash" on the chair pieces that are more support pieces of the chair. i only really painted the arm rests, the chair back and the 5 seat pieces. in retrospect- i maybe should have painted the 2 other "seat" pieces.....but, at this point it is, what it is.....
i wrote the poem down and put it on the seat of the chair. i also sanded the edges of the those pieces i really painted- can't have anything looking too perfectly painted....not my style. i like everything to look a little worn and loved. when i was completely finished, i varnished all of the pieces and let them dry hard.
i am so thankful my husband is handy....he put the whole thing together for me in the garage! which is no small feat!
