No. 99

After last night's post I ended up finishing the chair project despite the darkness, bugs and the fact that it was almost midnight. NBA finals are keeping us up late this week.

All in all, I like it but don't love it. I think there's too much going on in the seat and I should have stuck with more muted patterns and colors, maybe even just blacks and golds. Instead of redoing this one I am on the lookout for another junk chair (um, Dad ...?).

This is what it looked like at 8 p.m. yesterday.
I sanded it and painted it black ...

... then decoupaged the seat. Those curves were hard, so be impressed.

Then I distressed everywhere except for the seat pretty heavily. I'm out of distressing practice, but I think it improved the final look.
