Big Funky Chairs

Big Funky ChairsThe other day, I got a text from my friend Deb over some chairs that had been left out for the trash a few blocks away. Imagine my surprise when these were what i found! There are three of these. I refinished one in castle with dark silver metallic glaze and wipe on poly. The other two I plan to do as a set. The lines on these are just incredible. I can’t believe someone threw these out. One person’s trash is most certainly another person’s treasure!

Bench (commissioned)

I sanded it down, primed and painted parts (flat black), and stained the accent areas (miniwax dark walnut). Afterwards, i gave it all a few coats of poly. I really love the way that this turned out. It looks so much cleaner now.
