I wanted to help a local charity in my area when they advertised for a “Chair Challenge”. The top chairs were to be auctioned off at a Gala event to raise money for the charity group called Five Counties Children’s Centre.
I wanted to do something “grand” for them and I was going to make the chair out of white pine and stain it! I asked my wife Chris, who is a folk art painter to come up with a whimsical design to paint on the chair. She suggested we (me!) LOL paint the chair in “cool kid” colors. Each piece had to be painted separately and then assembled with ss screws. I made another chair for my granddaughter almost 2 years ago and the only criticism my had was that I didn’t plug the screw holes sooooo she had my plug every hole which meant more painting, almost 100 plugs!! She was right of course and the plugs finished off the chair and footrest nicely!
