the chair

Remember the yellow chair? I cannot tell you what comes over me- but the red and green have a special power over my paint brushes....

The checks and the dots, the stripes and the flowers- they take over!! I am powerless to stop them!!!!!!!



I try- I really do- I love a modern look. I would love to just add a few splashes of bold color and leave it there...........


But alas, it is not meant to be......


In style or not, I am destined to paint dots....


And more dots....


Hopefully all who sit in this chair...


Will feel cheerful and happy.

I just have one requirement........


When you sit in this chair, you must wear clothes like these.

Or maybe an outfit like this.

Just remember that dots and stripes do go together.

The more colors the better.

Mom and Dad Mincy, your chair is changed forever....just don't forget to wear your polka dots.

Oh, Sara, I love that chair! I have two wooden chairs in my studio that I've just started thinking about painting. I think I might have to use your chair as inspiration. Of course, I need to find the perfect outfit to go with it! Thanks for sharing!

Who gets to say what is "in style" anyway? I like that you have a style all your own and it is YOU!!! God's design for each person is perfect and we are all different styles:) Looking at that chair DID make me happy!!!

Sara,

You have outdone yourself this time! I cannot tell you how much I LOVE this chair now! I can't wait to show it off and hear all the wonderful comments -- it is officially our "happy chair."! Thank you so much!

Personally, I love the bright colors! The only thing that would make it better was if it was my chair. I'd love to have a house as bright and cheerful as yours. Maybe one day, I can pull it off. I love your blog BTW and I have a blog award for you! It's posted at http://www.homeschoolmo.com/2010/09/my-first-blog-award.html.

Been waitin' & waitin' to see the outcome of that chair and I gotta say it just could NOT be more CHEERFUL!!! I just LOVE it Sara! I love red & green, I love red & yellow, and I adore DOTS! What an adorable job!

2 questions: do you use a guide when you draw circles, like the ones you section off on the seat? Or can you do that just free-hand? And I also want to know if you spray some kind of sealer over the whole chair when you're done?

Thanks - and again, AWESOME job! :D
