Hydrangea Chair

Ralph Waldo Emerson said ....
“Every chair should be a throne and hold a king”
Remember the plain ladderback chair ?

First, I stripped the many layers of paint ...
Then I used flat spray - to give a good base coat..
It took a while for 'inspiration' to grab me ...
but eventually I decided on white hydrangeas
All finished !!

Steppin' Out

Steppin' out with my Diva girls recently took me to one of my favorite places --- Wye River Designs!
This is a great place to unleash your creative side ..
Just LOOK at all the choices!!

Can you believe this wall of jars??  
... filled with tiles of a million colors and textures..

I take a look around at all of their finished projects, trying to get a little inspiration ...

....found a stepping stone - and got started

Ok - making progress ........ finished with the glue
now, let it dry overnight ...

cover the whole piece with grout...

Add a few beads ...... just because..

All finished!!!
Ready for the garden ...

this was from my last visit to Wye River Designs
