Befores and Afters

Here is the chair I have been working on.

Painted black.

Then I sanded it and did a little distressing and stained it with a mahogany Minwax Gel Stain.

I just love how it turned out!

Sometime when I start a little project it balloons it to a bigger project. I have a plan but I have to pick away at it because it takes time to find what I'm looking for at the price I'm willing to pay. So I got the chair done and I put it in the entry way. I played a little musical furniture to get the lookI was looking for.

Here is what my entry looked like before.

Now here is the after.

I haven't put the fabric on the chair yet I'm testing it out. I'm not sure if that is "the one."
I also got this mirror with all that cool stuff I got the other day.

I just put a brown glaze on it and hung it above the fireplace.

Painting the fireplace and changing the mantel is on my someday list.

It looks great! You are so talented. Not sure if I am in love with the fabric, but I am not a big fan of plaid. I love the new cabinet and the technique you used on the chair is so great!
