Anyone remember this chair? I don't know what it is, but no matter what I do, I don't like it. When I painted it before, I REALLY liked it. The lines were perfect and asymmetrical, it was awesome. BUT the paint was too thick, so when you would sit on it, you would leave patterns in the paint and it looked horrible. My pants actually stuck to it. Sad day. So Mike sanded it down for me, and I started again. Only this time, I wasn't so pleased. The paint kept seeping through the tape, which happened before, but for some reason the first time was a lot easier. This time, my hand kept shaking and I just couldn't get it right. SO after hours of re-painting and touch-ups, I let my anger get the best of me and sanded it down, once again. Ahhhhh!!! So I decided on something else...Mike says he likes it, but I just can't wrap my head around it. Maybe I took the wrong approach. I did it all my hand, NO TAPE. I don't think it was a good idea. I painted it last week, and have been letting it sit in my living room ever since. I stare at it thinking of new ideas. This chair will be the end of me, I'm sure. What to do, what to do?? I am seriously contemplating sanding it down AGAIN and starting from scratch. I guess we will have to see what happens. I will keep you updated!

I have so been there. It's so much harder to do the same project more than once...especially with paint. I can't believe your steady hand. there's no way I could paint a straight line w/o tape. It would also look cute with a black and white patterned fabric seat cover. I love the style of the chair. What a great find. Oh, and by the way, I'm totally in love with your candlesticks!! They look gorgeous!! ( I hope you don't mind me taking a peek at your stuff. You are very talented).
