1st B4&After

Hello!
Can I just start by saying how excited I am to have my very first B4&After finished???!!!  This has been a long time in the making...well a long time for me anyway!

Here is this cute little shield arm chair!  It was so sad and broken when I first found it!  Joints had come loose over time, the cushion had seen better days....a few decades ago!  But I saw the potential this lill beauty had!   And after a little wood glue and clamps, new cushioning and upholstery, a little paint and stain, it blossomed into this!

Can I just say, WOW!  I so love this!  And I'm having a hard time putting it in the shop!  But, I have other projects, and chairs, and can't wait to get to those. 
It's always good to hear from others out there in blog land!
Enjoy~

  1. Chrisse! Thank you so much for your sweet comment and advice reguarding my "style." Thank you for the encouragement! I get so caught up in what other people are doing that it makes it hard for me to figure out what I want to do. It's time to stop keeping up with the Jones's and style my home with things that make me feel good and others comfortable. I love your new blog! You have a way with words! If you continue to post often and with as much detail and personality as you have so far, this blog will take off. Thanks for shaing. I can't wait to see what else you have to offer blogland!
    Blessings,
    Kelli

  7. It's amazing what a lift the chair has been given by the lighter colour - the chair is a gorgeous shape in itself but the new lick of paint emphasises it's prettiness. A great makeover!

  14. I'm visiting from Debbies Newby Party. The chair came out great. I have 6 of these chairs and was just telling my hubby that I want to paint them since they are in pretty bad shape. I will have to show him this post. I just became you newest follower!
