From the Deepest Corners


Just look what I found the other day at the back of the garage. I'm not sure how old they are but they've got to be at least 1950's if not another couple of decades before that! They're still surprisingly strong despite being forgotten in the darkness for many years. I know this because I tried each of them out in turn, just to see and I didn't fall straight through!
I was wondering whether I should do anything to them, a make-over perhaps? The more I look at them I think they've got it going on already without any intervention from me. What do you think?


In case you're thinking I'm a hundred years old having chairs like this in the back of my garage then let me just say that 2 years ago we inherited a few bits and bobs from my father-in-law and it's taken me until now to be brave enough to go through the deepest corners of the family garage! :)

What a great find, what pretty chairs! I always love going into my parents garage...I always come out with something! :-)

What fabulous finds! I think they are funky just as they are :)

I think some bold striped fabric would look great on the chairs, or leave the fabric and paint the wood hot pink or red? They are great finds.
And your paintings are wonderfully charming and vibrant, I especially love the bird, lovely!

I think the chairs are beautiful already...however painting the wood could be an idea! Hi and thanks for your comment on my blog! It's exciting to find someone from bristol! Although I'm sure there are many blogs from this creative city!I like your artwork, so colourful and happy :-)
