|Latest ASCP Project - Four Carved Chairs|
The set of chairs were purchased at one of Vicki's estate sales - she has become one of my favorite Atlanta-area sellers and often gives me a good deal if she can. Upon arriving at this sale, she told me right away that she thought there were some "projects" for me in the garage and I found these.
The four chairs had obviously been sitting around for some time. The paint was awful - a chipped, stained mustard color. The shape of the chairs and woodwork design, however, were very nice and they were of the age and construction quality that included hand-tied eight-way coil springs in the foundation - almost never seen these days in this type of upholstered piece. I bought them for $80.
The chairs sat around for some time before I proceeded to redo. I choose a color called "CoCo" - a taupish-brown and finished the woodwork with first clear and then dark wax to enhance the carvings. I have about 10 colors to choose from and usually, as was the case here, make a selection after selecting the fabric.

I really liked how the chairs turned out. I am now looking for more projects!
