Hello All:

Both of these chairs were posted here previously minus the milk paint. My wife helped my son and I out by getting these chairs painted and ready for entry into the 89th Annual WestEnd Fair in Gilbert,PA. My son’s chair is one coat of Lexington Green followed by 2 coats of Soldier Blue. The chair I entered is Barn Red over Salem Red. As you can see in the picture my son took first place while I took a lowly third. I am extremely proud of him and hope he stays interested in this craft. It was great to hear the people complimenting him when we picked up our chairs today. What a great confidence builder!!

Again, congratulations to you both. I had the honor of taking a chair class at the Windsor Insitiute in July with Freddy and his Dad was there to help when needed. It was a pleasure to see a young man learn the skills that are slowly eroding away to Playstation and Twitter.

3rd isn’t so bad .. well, unless your son brings home the 1st .. 2 places better ;)
(I bet you feel better than if it were the other way around).

High praise for both chairs and what a memory and story to share for years to come.
Again – congratulations to the whole family for a job well done
