Refinished Chair-Great for the Summer

Shabby Chic Reed Chair
A great place to relax

 I just love this chair and hate to part with it.  But...I am reminded that I cannot keep every chair that I refinish.  Our house is getting a little bit crowded.  The basement is full and yard sale season is just beginning.  This chair was painted brown when I picked it up in a used furniture store.  I painted it blue with a white wash.  I was never happy with the finish, so I painted it a soft green and sanded it enough to allow a bit of the blue and brown to show through.   

I repaired a broken reed in the seat.  In time it will fade to match.
