The weather in Texas has finally cooled down enough to make it possible to paint in the garage again. Just in time for me, since I've been storing up painting projects most of the Summer.
I stacked two chairs together and started painting with Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Country Grey.
Yes, it does look like white doesn't it? It's actually a greenish-yellow-beige as far as I can tell. Here's a closer look at Country Grey on a frame I'm working
But, getting back to my story here...When my back started hurting from all the bending, I commandeered the rolling garden seat. We bought this mobile seat at Sam's Club, for around $69, early last Spring.
We haven't used it much for gardening, but it sure has come in handy for working on projects around the house. The seat swivels around and it's low to the ground, which allows for easy access to low areas.
While we're on the subject, another handy low-cost item that I've found really helpful with painting projects is this flat moving dolly. We bought it a few years ago at Lowes for $12 and found it so handy, we immediately bought a second one.
It's great for moving a stack of boxes or you can use two of them to move couches, chairs and all sorts of furniture. I use them when I paint large pieces of furniture. Here is a cabinet I'm painting sitting on the flat dolly.
By placing the furniture on top of the flat dolly, I can paint the piece all the way to the bottom since the dolly holds it off the ground by a few inches and allows me to turn the piece all around.
I'm not going to paint the cabinet Country Grey. I was just checking out how the paint adhered to the press board finish. I'll be back with these pieces when I get them done.
Thanks for dropping by!
