  1. Umm, probably have 24ish chairs in my project stash. Can’t resist them! I have just gotten to the point in my life where I can actually work on them. Just did 4 in Sherwin Williams lipstick red for a friend. And finishing up 4 in black for another friend. The deal is that whenever I finish up a set, I seem to get the old set for my stash! Good news, bad news. The pile never seems to go down! Thankfully my parents have a huge attic that I can keep them in. Thank you Gail for the Homeright inspiration – it has been an awesome partner in getting the chairs done! They turn out so beautifully! Great gallery of ideas, too. Thanks for sharing!

    • Carol,

      hahahah that’s so funny that you move 4 chairs out and get THEIR old chairs in return. having 24 chairs is better than having 24 dressers, right? I’m so happy you’re on the Finish Max bandwagon. Isn’t it a game changer? so easy to change up any project, but for chairs? A definite life saver. Keep us posted if you do any of these projects with one of your 24 chairs. 🙂


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me! I read and appreciate every word!
