The time has come,I decided, to paint the chair. Yeah, the one I talked about in my last post. The one that has been in my basement for about three weeks. Yeah- that one. Sooooooooooo....This is what I started with, my "blank slate", so to speak................


Add my inspiration-a Van Gogh print, "Starry Night", and two hours later.......a start.........


I still have another couple, three hours left-but it is coming. The group will put a clear coat finish on top of the paint.
IN the meantime, I have this old, beat up chair in the family room- and Bear has claimed it as his own-I mean, hey- what's not to love? A couple of old blankets, a perfect view out the sliding door into his own backyard, and a way to keep an eye on the rest of the family......
So this is Bear, keeping watch, to make sure I didn't paint anything weird (please excuse the faded and torn upholstery-what can I say? Bear likes it).
And finally- proof positive that my wee Annie is growing up- she now can make poached eggs on toast, without any help- and will even take orders in the morning!!!!!!!

Love the chair - you are very talented!! Have you made up your mind about the blanket yet?

I just love the chair too, all that Bear-ness. Gypsy likes the couch, that way she can have the middle and be touching both of us at once. Oh yeah, and your painted chair is terrific!

The chair is fabulous! That is such a cool idea.

"Hi Bear! Your squirrels are how big? Think there is room for me on your comfy chair? Ripped upholstery is the best - I like to dig around and move the covers where I sit or lay. Who does your hair? I love it. Write me again. Oh, does your child always bring you eggs on toast? I would roll over for that!" Kira

I think the chair looks wonderful! I have no idea how to make poached eggs - maybe Annie could do a tutorial.

Oh, loving the chair! I tracked you back from the comment that you left on my blog. You were my SP9 recipient. Remember?

You asked a question about STR - actually, I don't reinforce the toe/heel as there is nylon in the wool (I think) and I am not very hard on my socks.

Deb, that is so incredible! What a great idea, and it fits beautifully with the style of the chair...Hmmmm...I have two adirondack chairs on my porch right now.....
