This will be in my sale July 29 and 30th.
Trying to put this into the car at night was quite a job (I think it was even raining but that could be my memory trying to make it all seem more miserable than it was)! We did manage to get it in the trunk with most of it hanging out which was ok since we only had about 6 blocks to take it. At home we unloaded it into the garage and the next day I ordered my first package of milk paint.
While waiting for the paint to arrive, I watched all the you-tube videos I could find about how to use it. It took several coats of paint and with each coat I doubted whether it was going to work or whether it was worth it. I painted it completely in the garage, bent over or sitting on the ground.
Finally, it was finished enough to bring into the house and with that piece I started actually looking at what was being set out curbside in my neighborhood for free.
My parents found these patio chairs on the sidewalk free not too long ago.
here. I have finally decided to put these chairs in the my sale this July! They look great with the metal table I just finished!
