I brought these 6 silky oak dining chairs just before Christmas and I had planned on doing them up over the holidays but unfortunately I was really sick over Christmas and didn't get around to it.
I had no plans this weekend or any chores as I'd done them during the week so it was a perfect weekend to make a start on them.
When I brought them their paint had been stripped by a paint stripper so they needed a really good sanding!!! I spent most of Saturday sanding them, patching up holes, replacing screws and gluing up some loose parts.
Today I started painting on the sealer. I set up in the sunshine and was only there for a few minutes before I decided it was way to hot, so I moved under a tree in some shade. I was there for a good hour before it started raining and I had to quickly pack up and I set up again in the garage. After a little lunch break I went back out in to the garage but the sweat was pouring off me as it was quite humid after the rain. So I didn't get as much done today as I would have liked.
How ever it did give me a couple of hours in the craft room and I'll show you later this week what I created.
I'll keep you posted on how my chairs turn out :)
Hope you all had a great weekend!!
