Apple Green Child's Chair

I finished this little upcycle project yesterday - it's already sold to a local photographer to use as prop in children's photos.  I painted the little chair an apple green, distressed it a bit, and then added a walnut stain which I quickly wiped off.

Melissa! Love the chair and I love the picture! Congrats on selling it so quickly.

(BTW: I have a cupboard that needs painted. Can I send you a plane ticket so you can show me your technique? LOL.)

I love this chair Melissa, you did a great job. You must have been pleased with a quick sale, although I bet it might have been hard to part with it. Love the way you photographed it with the contrast of the purple flowers. Thanks for sharing. ~ Abby

Hello,
I visited your blog today. I just love all the romantic and charming pictures. The "Through the eyes of a child" is beautiful. Children are God's special people. The sparkling jewels that you use in your crafts are so pretty. I absolutely love the bottle with the bride on it. My daughter is getting married next fall, and that would be perfect for her. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. The link is: http://redrosealley.blogspot. I would enjoy coming back to visit you and looking at all your creative ideas. Hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
