Blast From The Past

I painted this chair one semester when I was staying at my parent's and not taking classes. I couldn't find a job for just 3 or 4 months, and I REALLY needed a project. It was inspired by Mary Englebright and Alice in Wonderland. :) I painted the desk a year later in the summer of 2004. They were well-loved for the 2 1/2 years I was in school at Auburn, and when I moved to Huntsville and had to choose between storing them or giving them away, I decided to give them to some great girls I know. They're still well-loved, so I think I made the right choice. :) I come across fun painted furniture all the time in my blog-walking, and I realized that I didn't even have pictures of some of my first projects. I'm trying to track them down, and I'll share one every now and then as I get them. I hope everyone else's week is going faster than mine. :)
