I wasn't prepared.
So I'm warning you ahead of time, so you can be ready.
You'll be able to tell very soon that I didn't think this project would be all that interesting before I started.
You know that feeling?
And then how most of the time you're wrong and wish you had planned better?
Yeah, this is one of those. Therefore I have no "before" picture.
Thanks in advance for your grace.
It all started with six chairs. Here's two of them:
I had bought six chairs, each in varying degrees of disrepair. I only needed four, so I used the bits and pieces to fix up four good solid chairs.
But then I had pieces left over. Chair skeletons in my basement.
I did have two of those really cool curved top pieces left, and that's where this all began.
They started out the color of these chairs, from the Driftwood-Look Table & Chairs.
Just sort of normalish.
And then I fell off the boat again and forgot to take pictures.
The missing part is this: I distressed it. Mostly I scraped away at it with a paint scraper. A little sand paper at times. I just worked on it until it looked right.
Next came the hooks. Yes, hooks.
Enter dilemma number 1: How do I get this thing to hang on the wall.
Problem: Sawtooth hangers are ridiculously expensive for the small little thing they are. Silly.
Solution: I found these little metal circle thingies for about 30 cents. And just stapled them on.
Have a great week--and Happy Father's Day this Sunday, all you Dads out there!! Well, I guess I mostly just mean my Dad. Have a great day, Dad!
