Yesterday we went to Burnham on Sea for a look round the charity shops.....there are 8 or 10 I think, including a couple which do furniture. Well, in the very first one, we found the chairs we've been looking for to go with our new (to us) dining table.....4 lovely old oak chairs in very good condition. They've been varnished at some time in their lives....OH is going to strip off the varnish and sand them down, then I'm probably going to paint them in antique cream, to match the table legs. We got them for the bargain price of £26.99 for the four! I'm so pleased with them.....that's another item we can cross off our list.
Apologies, by the way, for the poor quality of the photos on my blog....I only take pics with my phone, and I'm no photographer!
OH is out in the garage right now, starting to strip the varnish off the chairs, so hopefully I should be able to make a start on painting them in a couple of days. We popped into the diy store and bought a tin of antique-style eggshell paint in cream.
Whilst he's doing that, I'm off to the kitchen to make faggots and strawberry icecream.....I'll post pics and the recipe tomorrow.
