So my home decor projects have to happen over the weekend the thing is sometimes you just want to sleep in, maybe watch some TV (read captain James T Kirk) btw i have the hots for the capt in the worst way its ok my husband is cool with it and after watching the final frontier he teases me endlessly for having the hots for a fat old dude in a silly outfit -he doesn't get it. I admit not Kirk's finest moment, that was the series but i digress.
Projects especially DIY are time consuming, taxing and cut into Kirk time and when you dont have labour saving gadgets? nightmare. This i found out while refinishing this chair
Covering chairs or any thing without a staple gun is a straight up bitch.
I had to hammer a gajilllion tacks too tiny to allow a good grip and my fingers are traumatize by the hammer. who knew such a hell existed?
After suffering a lot and cursing my refusal to just get someone.....VOILA! I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR!
A pretty side chair and when it is admired, i swell with pride like a ..proud parent .all injuries are forgoten or forgiven. DIY has delivered big time all is forgiven.
once again before also picture my equipment-it worked good!
I used peacock blue spray paint,a fabric scrap and hessian a little light sanding and she was done!
Ignore the mayhem in the living room it is a work in progress and will soon be ready for close ups! you may
enjoy a glimpse of the gray wall painted with crown's pebble.
