MCM Chair Finished! Before and After

MCM Chair Finished! Before and After   It all started a year ago when I found this chair in the trash behind the thrift store.

It was filthy and the dirt had stained the wood dark in places.  I cleaned it and sanded it back.  Using General Finishes Java Gel, I stained it into a deep, warm brown and then applied General Finishes wipe-on urethane to seal it.  I also purchased foam inserts at Walmart. more here!

Mid-Century Modern Chair – Trash to Treasure!

I don’t know if you remember my great trash to treasure Mid-Century Modern chair?  I found it in the trash outside a thrift store!  I brought it home and gave it a good sanding and cleaning.  Here was the process:

I finally had time to work on the chair.  Walmart had foam inserts that were amazingly the perfect fit.  My mother-in-law has sewn a few covers for me and all I had to do was the finishing touches.  Almost done! more here!

I recorded and published the General Finishes Chalk Style Paint video only to have YouTube tell me that it was using copyrighted material.  What?  The culprit?  I had recorded while Elton John was playing in the background and it picked up the sound as “copyrighted material”.  Yikes!  I finally figured it out and added a sound track on top of the Elton John..whew!  This is why it has taken me so long to publish! more here!

FFM with Video Tutorial and Beautiful West Virginia

West Virginia

We are back from our fantastic vacation in West Virginia!  It was SO much fun and we really enjoyed ourselves.  We stayed in a house along the Cacapon River and had a blast at Cacapon State Park.  We went swimming, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding and made s’mores on the outdoor firepit.  On the last day, we drove to Harper’s Ferry and went whitewater rafting down the Shenandoah River.  The guides stopped the rafting along the way for us to swim in the river and it was a fantastic day! more here!
