I just can’t wait to share with you the transformation of my garden chairs! Remember last fall I asked your opinion about what color to paint them? We all generally decided on blue.
Well they are almost done (and for picture purposes they are — since the oil based paint I used takes like 5 days to dry, and the bottoms are still not done, and its going to rain for the net couple days, and I just can’t wait any more). Aren’t they perfect! I ***ADORE*** the blue!
So I paid $20 for the 4 matching chairs and $25 for the one with the punchouts on the end. (so $45 total) and about $35 on a gallon of paint and $15 on primer (now $95 total) and guess what I saw yesterday on craigslist? A set of 4 (nearly) identical chairs with a matching table — still in rusty old condition — for $450. Now that seller is probably smoking something and I can’t imagine them actually going for that price…..but I am curious, now that they are almost all done, what do you think they are worth when I get them finished?
