When my daughter moved out this past September, I decided to take an old chair that I had picked up at the thrift shop and re-finish it for her first apartment (paid $4.00 for it). This was one of those DIY projects where I actually started taking pictures as I went along. I wanted some really nice before and after pictures to share.
Well, a funny story about those before and after pictures…..
It was a nice sunny day........and I was painting in the garage with the garage door open. After taking several before photo’s, I laid my camera on top of the hood of my Santa Fe which was parked right in front of the garage. While I was on my second coat of paint, I got a call to pick up some items a few miles away. So, I pushed everything in the garage, ran into the house and got my keys and jumped into the car – and took off. At this point, I still didn’t realize that my camera was been sitting on the hood of the car. I drove to my friends house and then returned home.
I opened the garage and got ready to start painting again when I decided to take another shot of the project. It was that very moment that I realized what I had done! I looked over at the hood of the car and there was no longer a pretty red camera sitting on top. I grabbed my keys again and retraced my route. Unfortunately, I never found that red camera. I don’t know how I missed a shiny red camera sitting on a silver hood! I miss that old camera.
So, I only have the “after pictures” to share. Guess you’ll have to take my word for it when I say the previous version of the chair was a little on the hideous side! I think it turned out pretty good though. The chair had stampings from 1959 on the bottom of it.
