chilly days

it's getting so cold out there! maybe someday the windows in my shop will be replaced and i'll be able to turn the heat on without watching it literally roll out the window. anyhoo... i think i may have lost some of the  great before and afters from last weekend (i haven't lost all faith yet...) but i do have a couple of other things.
an old secretary style chair with some new fabric and a little paint. these old chairs are so easy to make new. plus i love the industrial style.

i love what a little piping can do.. so sharp. they make me wish i had nice smooth floors i could slide around on.

i missed the before pic on this one- don't ask, i don't have a good excuse- but it was that traditional 70's style brown with thick poly and big brass hardware. the shiny black paint made me rethink selling it! i love it. 
why yes,  that is grey milk paint! proof that my love is enduring.
this is the final product of  the post a week or so ago. i love how it came out but painting those lines was not as easy as i expected. good thing i don't mind a slow project every once in a while.
