I haven’t done a quandie quickie in a while. I’ve been so busy working on furniture this summer, that I haven’t done many small, quick projects.
Recently I had some extra MMS milk paint in Eulalie’s Sky mixed up, left over from a dresser I was painting. I hate to let this stuff go to waste, so I looked around for something to paint. I pulled out this cute little vintage child’s folding chair that I picked up while my sister was visiting. The perfect candidate for a paint job.
I don’t have a ‘before pic’ to share, but this was basically bare wood. Old, dirty, bare wood. I did absolutely nothing to prep it. No sanding, no cleaning. I just brushed off some dirt and called it good. Since the paint was already mixed up, I just slapped it on. Two coats. Followed by a quick sanding to distress and then a coat of hemp oil.
I added a metal number 7 plate to the back of the chair.
How do you like the newest addition to my clock collection? While my sister was here, we checked out a few shops in Minneapolis, including Junket: Tossed & Found, which is where I found the clock. A vintage clock with aqua in it was on my wish list, so I was thrilled to find this one for a mere $12.
I don’t know why I am obsessed with child sized chairs. Something about them just appeals to me. This one will likely get a price tag slapped on him for the October Carriage House Sale.
Isn’t he just adorable?
