Another Happy Chair

My dear friend Carrie just moved into a new house! She and her husband have been hoping for a house for years....and the stars aligned! They rented out their townhouse and moved into a gorgeous home... all within a few weeks!

She asked me to paint this chair to go in their new master bedroom, and being I have a thing for chairs, I jumped at the chance! This chair was from her grandmother's dining set.

I sanded, primed and sprayed it with Rustoleum's Heirloom White...my go to white for spray painting! I distressed a bit and then found the PERFECT fabric to go with her medium blue walls!

Hope she loves it!

Side note...I may be MIA in the next few weeks as I get my oldest off to Kindergarten and the younger two back to preschool. I'm frazzled to say the least and furniture is on the back burner...temporarily.

Happy Wednesday!
