Put it together, and painted it—Old Fashioned Milk Paint—2 coats, Pitch Black underneath, 2 coats Salem Red on top. I rubbed 2 coats Minwax Poly Coat on it after that.
I was afraid of painting a chair something other than black, but this one really came out pretty good. To get a feel for size, the kid (Conor, 8) is about 5’ tall. So this is not a small chair.
I’m going to enter it in the local fair. There is a lot of competition from cedar shingle birdhouses, so we’ll just have to see!
