Congratulations on your "new" throne! I like the details you put into it, and how it now fits in well with the rest of the room.

Hope your trip is going well!

Definitely is a throne! This would take me years to do because I couldn't paint it with the cover still on. (anal retentive?) oh well, I luv how you 'go with your gut' on things. Bowing to the queen of re-do's!
Can't wait to hear the yurt story. I enjoy reading the experiences of those who have built or vacationed in them. A relative stayed in a yurt in Ireland this fall for a weekend. It was that or a teepee.
Adventurous souls! (Does he have a blog?)


the chair looks great Karla, but ok.. whats a yirt??

A yirt is a large, round tent/home. My son is in the process of making it weather proof and moving in. Ill have some photos as he gets moved in. Its pretty cool

They are talking about doing a blog. I hope they do, they have a very interesting life going off the grid and living in the woods.

love your painting on the chair. Once recovered it will be perfect!



You crack me up, only you would paint a chair to match your Christmas tree, love it!

A Yurt huh??? Well that is probably better then a cave don't you think? I say, experience those things while you are young because when you are old it won't be fun any more!!! I love creative people.


Karla, I am pretty sure there are at LEAST 48 hours in your days! I thought I was going to have to email you to remind me of the name of that primer you use but luckily this post had a link to the tutorial - yay! Now to see if I can find the stuff around here. Just a small Christmas project but will take a year if I try to sand it. Thanks so much for the inspiration to just DO IT! BTW, I like the leopard print with the new paint. Just sayin'.


You make it all look so easy!

It's really a great choice to make your other pieces of furniture and for Christmas as well. I would love to say it's really a throne.
