Roadside Rescue Aqua Chair Update!

 Roadside Rescue Chair!
This chair was gorgeous and on the side of the road.  Free.
Free is my favorite price.
It means that regardless of how pretty the wood is,
I can do whatever I want with it because I saved it from the landfill.

 Okay, it was pretty.
The wood would have been a major sanding, staining and refinishing project...
that I just frankly did not want to put the time into.
Which is probably why it ended up on the side of the road.

So I painted it.
Exotic Sea from Valspar.
It painted up nicely and hasn't chipped off yet...so here's hoping.

 I love it!
I wish I had a gorgeous front porch to put this on...
 Until the next move, it's in my craft room.

That scroll work is gorgeous and not lost after the paint! I think it looks amazing!

And you're sure it wasn't an antique chair? I think it was more of a copy, but I get nervous when people refinish furniture that is worth more untouched. Looks better with a new coat of paint on it.
