My friend Mary found this sweet child's chair at auction and bought it for me.  I must say it needed some work.

 All the joints needed to be re-glued.  I had forgot how much I hate gluing furniture. The paint was old and falling off and needed a paint job. So I knocked it all apart and re-glued the chair then gave it a good sanding. Then a choose a sage green milk paint. I love how this paint goes on so smooth.

I put a little stencil on the back of the chair for a little detail.

Then I sanded the edges and coated the whole chair with a brown glaze.  I hooked a little chair pad for the chair. I think it looks much better then before.  I plan on putting it in the little bear room upstairs in my home.

By the way I received Rebekah L. Smith new book in the mail the other day. I love the book, love her colors and designs. I think it will transfer over to rug hooking very well. If you get a chance check it out.

  1. Your chair turned out so sweet Tonia! The wool colors you used for the rug are perfect for it! I'm expecting my copy of this new book to arrive in the mail any day now - can't wait!
