Check out this chair...those carvings, the curvy legs. This was a must have and the woman selling wasn't movin' on the price.....this does not make happy. Negotiating is one of my favorite parts of shopping at the flea market and some simply suck the joy out of it.
Many of my bloggy friends have asked me what color blue gray I use. It's my go to color. I just love it. Love how it takes on a different color depending on the lighting.....dark room appears bluer, light room then grayer. I just mix up some oops paint. A little gray, some blue and white if ya want to lighten it up a bit. I added gesso to this white ala Villabarnes style. It gives the paint a kinda flat look. Oh and I was curious what gesso was made from and guess what??? Chalk...but ya didn't hear it from me, ha! So put away your plaster of paris and sodium carbonate
my cheap friends Ladies and give this a try.
OK, back to the chair....gettin' a little chat happy over here...
