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....
