The Painted Chair
Well here it is...! In an earlier blog about the Maine Discovery Museum http://www.mainediscoverymuseum.org/ located in Bangor, Maine, I mentioned an invitation to participate in their November auction fund raiser called "Save A Seat". Maine artists were invited to paint a chair of their choice which is to be donated and will go to the highest bidder.
I enlisted the help of my talented carpenter son Eric who built this little beauty.
We collaborated on the design and agreed that this style would be useful and comfortable too. There is a storage area under the seat lid which is attached with a brass piano hinge. I love it already!
I have my theme idea ready to go( I'm not telling you what it is) and will start by priming the entire piece...then the fun begins. I'll post photos to show the progress until it's completed...stay tuned..
