Back In Black

When I introduced you to my little friend I hadn't taken before and after pictures of the chairs that I painted ... it was unbelievably hot - too hot- still is really. Today we hit a balmy 95 with humidity only 99% ... I got out this am to snap some pics while it was 67 degrees - bliss before the smothering begins.

Green and rusted

Much better don't cha think?

I apologize for the shadows - our house faces east and I took these this am. The ivy is from our wedding ... almost 10 years ago! My mother had the presence of mind to keep some from one our center pieces and when we arrived home from our honeymoon she had some beginning to root on our counter waiting for us. Moms are good like that aren't they?

Two chairs done ... four more to go. With the heat like this though I'd say it's going to be closer to Christmas before I even think about picking up my little friend again!

Huge improvement....That chair looks great. I'm thinking (just thinking) about stuff I want to get done now, before the heat travels north and I become a total slug again.

It is so hot here too. I hate it.

I am loving the chairs!!!
