Who likes stripes?
This very old chair somehow made its way into my life.
For the life of me I can’t remember how I acquired it, but it was a mess.
The seat is made up of about four slats assembled tongue-in-groove style.
But the repairs were done so long ago the slats were dry and separated again. While it wasn’t going to collapse, it was not safe for wearers of shorts.
It was so dry, in fact, that after I got it back together—without the extra five dozen or so screws and nails—I wiped it down with a generous coat of oil.
Then a few days later I painted it.
The wood was still dry. Kind of scuffed and rough. It would look best distressed but what color?
I decided on all-of-the-above.
I figured I can always paint it over in one color if this doesn’t work.
But I like it. If I can find a little desk or small table it might become part of a set if it hangs around very long.
If it was yours to paint, what color would you choose?
