Yay! but don't get too excited.

Two views of the chalk-painted counter stool

I have now finished all three and find myself relatively satisfied. Using the chalk paint certainly beat stripping and sanding before painting.  I didn't know how much work it would be to buff the wax coating though.  I imagine Dave and I will be buffing furniture while watching TV through the rest of the winter.  I've got enough done that we can sit on them, but they don't feel as nice as I know they could.

Look to the left, see my 7 year old runners; the not-as-gorgeous but brand-new runners are to the right.  And I'm keeping them both, even though the old ones have started moving away from the soles.

This weekend, I may get instructions on how to send myself the photos I take with my phone.  Depends on Emily's good will.   She's a good person, but I think I try her patience....

  1. My old phone doesn't take/receive good photos. My daughter tries to send me pictures of things from her phone but they are so small on mine I can hardly see them. The last time she had something I wanted I had her private post it to me on FB.

    I do like the colors more in the older shoe as pink has never been my color, but you'll be fabulous in them.
    The furniture color is terrific! Great choice.
