Garden Chairs...

Fun Garden Chairs!

I found two old chairs that had been stored in an empty building for more that 20 years.  They were in pretty bad shape.  I removed all the webbing and painted and distressed!
I used some stencils and scrapbook paper for the lettering.  The baskets complete eith chains came from wal-mart.  They were easy to attach and hang where the seats were! Add some nice flowers and your done!

Pretty Picture Frames

Pretty Picture Frames
I have seen these all over Pinterest! Loved them, but had a little trouble finding the frames.  I think they have become so popular, everyone is grabbing them up! 

The before pics kind of tell the story.... Very old, very dirty.

No, you are not seeing double!  I have two!  I cleaned thep up with TSP, and put on a coat of my favorite color paint!

I used a brush an put the glaze on one side at a time.  Pretty thick so I could get in the cracks. 
Take a soft cloth an wipe off the excess. 

When your finished, and its all dry, either use some polycrylic or some sort of spray sealer.
Really easy and looks great! Good Luck finding your frames!

The box!

I call it the box!

Still at the thrift store. 
It was a solid box.  The hardware was really heavy, and in good shape!  I sent a picture message to my husband, he was a little bit skeptical....
I deglossed!
I prinmed!
I sanded and added stain to the bare places I sanded. 

I love the finished project!
