Paint it Black


Earlier this year after some deliberation I decided to paint my bargain $5 bentwood chair green. For some reason it never felt right, the green I had in my mind was not the colour it turned out to be and the thought of sanding it back and starting again was all a bit much. So I sent it off to be professionally painted black and I really love the way it turned out! I guess sometimes it is worth spending a little more and getting the result you really want.

It looks fabulous black!!! Love it! You must be so pleased with it. I adore your little white basket too - I remember first seeing one on sfgirlbybay and loving it. Hope you're having a lovely start to your week x

It looks fab! Did you get it done in Hobart? I love the look of the white basket too and it always amuses me that your skirting is exactly the same as mine -maybe it was locally made?

Damn that's awesome! I really liked it green but it looks sooo good black! Love the cushion! I'm sure i've expressed my envy over such a good score at $5!!
