Prince Charming

Here's a cute little kids chair. Of course no before pic...forgot again!!! Maybe I should put post-it notes all over my workshop...TAKE BEFORE PICS!!! Anyway he started out as a plain wood chair. I knew he needed a little fun...he is a kids chair after all!

First he got a fresh coat of red paint. Here's what I'm finding with red's hard to get good coverage without many coats of paint. It seems like most of the projects I've done with red take at least 3 coats! The problem is...I love red!!! The brighter the better. Good thing I like to paint!

Lately, instead of just painting and distressing something, I've been adding additional touches. The night I painted my postcard table I was so excited with how well it turned out I immediately decided to paint a crown on this little guy.

This picture is to give you an idea of it's size. I think this piece could go just about a kids room or toy room. He could be used as a plant stand. I even thought about hanging him on the wall! How fun would that be?

I'm linking up to Miss Mustard Seed's Furniture Feature Friday. Have a good weekend everyone!!! We are having some great friends over for breakfast tomorrow. They live in New Jersey and we usually only get to see them at Thanksgiving, so this is a real treat!
