Little Chairs

I love this kind of “little” chair.

We have all seen them.

The wood is glossy, smooth and was prominent in my “era”.

I believe it was the “colonial style” but I am not sure.

I picked these up for $4.00 a piece and felt they could use a sweet update.

Wiped them down and brought out the ASCP, Duck Egg…..


I did not take one single picture without the pillows.

I don’t know if it is my love/hate relationship with spindles making me want to hide them.

The fact that I have been pillow happy in my staging lately…..

Or what it was….

But sorry….they already live at the consignment store, so if you want to see how precious the spindles came out, you will have to visit them personally.

They were distressed and I  only used the “clear wax”, to preserve this color.

Sweet transformation.

I think they would look cute in red.

Do you?

What about navy?

Let me know what you think.

    I love them!   I see them (the before) all the time in the garbage.  I always pass them up afraid that somebody will turn me into “Hoarders” if I bring one more “treasure” into my garage:)  BUT since you and your duck eggs have now inspired me….it is ON!  Can you reveal a secret?  Do you sand down the high gloss on all of these 70ish pieces? Or is that the magic of chalk paint?

     @de99c8ca726e19a21ace228bad06411c Hey Nerdy Bird! No secret but it is the “magic” of ASCP….sticks right on. Pretty cool, huh? Go forth and dig from your neighbors trash! Love, Me

    I am hanging on every post.  LOL  You have inspired me to give this furniture flipping a try.  We really need the extra cash because my husband will not have a job as of next year.  I love doing stuff like this so cross your fingers I can make this work for us.  Thank you so much for all the useful and helpful info you give.  I wouldn’t have the courage to try without all the info you’ve posted.   Boy don’t I sound all sappy.  :)  Sorry about that but I really do appreciate all your help.

    They’d be good in any color–just depending on the decor where they’ll live.

    I do quite a bit of chalk painting and Duck Egg is just about my most favorite color right now…I love it!

    Your chairs turned out so beautiful and ready for a second life….well done!

    My goodness — yes, we’ve all seen these at thrift stores and garage sales — you really transformed them!
