I just Love painting old chairs! I found this one along with 4 more chairs at the end of my neighbors driveway.I told them I would paint them anyway they wanted but they had bought new ones so I took them all home and started painting! I drive my husband crazy! LOL! I must have 20 or more in our garage!  I just paint them up and put them back in the garage..I haven't any room in my house!

Clickart writes: This is great - nice art! I love painting and re-purposing old chairs, too. Our local Hospice organization has a fundraiser each year called "Chairs for Charity"; artists/donors paint and re-do chairs and other stuff for auction. You've inspired me to share a couple that I've donated with you and my fellow junkers! Posted: 12:56 pm on January 11th
Lovingmylife writes: thank you everyone! I was thinking of selling them but I didn't think they would sell..I think I will do that tho! ;)
But now I have a bigger problem! How much to sell them for!? LOL!
Thanks again for the boost!
