The Before ~ Seriously in need of TLC chair pair... ebay....cheap.... need I say more.
Bleached Chairs ~ This ramble is in response to queries on bleached chairs & reno as in renovation...no I have not been to Reno....
Saw a post from the provocative & wildly hilarious Shar Everything over @ Design Indulgence on seeing bleached chairs @ Scott's. Got my brain a thinking..... Uhm.... might this work for the I am in need of serious TLC dining set for my sister's beach place that we were coveting @ CT & just waiting for it to hit the magic number? Take a breathe that was allot of bs to spit out... I think it will work but hold the phone perhaps we better do a test batch..... Had two little Chips that were the perfect candidates lurking in the basement. Call up our trusty furniture refinisher, Bobby Renfro & he says Sure, on my way. Can't wait to try this crazy thing y'all are calling bleaching.
Sidebar ~ these Chips were slated for an orange lacquer overhaul but I sacrificed them for the cause which makes me Sister of the Year I would say. Hell, sister of the Century!

The results have a driftwood sorta' look which will be perfect for her Casa by the Sea. For these I cut up & starched a painters drop cloth which seriously looks just like an expensive linen, for real. May monogram..... Really needs some color...just saying.

Liking the results so onto the bigger project. Results coming soon! In the mean time check out my little chinoise chest Bobby Renfro did using Myoverlays.
Bobby Refro is the best furniture restorer ever. We have had allot of fun creating some magic with different pieces of In Need of TLC furniture. I will post more of our creations once I get settled in my new/old home. For now here is a Before of the Reno (renovation... seriously you had to ask...) and one During which was just last week. Obviously it will be awhile before the reveal of all our projects..... sorry. But it will rock so it is worth the wait.
Yes, Thanks for asking...... that is a moat in the front yard.
