Red Hot Chair

 Once again, Craigslist and my wonderful friend Lee have pulled through.  Check out this old chair she found for FREE off of Craigslist.  I don't know how she finds so many awesome things for free!  Well Lee just had a baby, baby number 4.  So...the carved details were just too much for her to comprehend.  
She gave me the chair.  Thank you Lee!

I have had it for a few months, and last week I got sick of one of us always standing up to eat or trying to share a chair because we have 4 kitchen chairs and 5 family members.  I got the Valentines Itch, and decided on RED!  

Just some light sanding with HEAVY GRIT sand paper to rough the chair up.
A quick spray down (2 coats) with Rustoleum in Apple Red and Voila! 

I don't always spray paint, but this was fun and easy and I am so happy with the result!
Main thing, we all have a place to sit at dinner!  
My kids already named it the Birthday Chair!
