On the farm
BLAH. All my exciting plans for this chair and it ended up a mess. It didn't take the regular spray paint at all, and when I tried to sand it and use a spray primer I got a crazy flaking reaction. Another round of sanding only helped marginally. So I used regular trim paint left over from my house and did two coats with a brush. It still looks kind of a mess. The black chair I did last week also had issues when I tried to put a shiny top coat on it. From now on I'm going to buy only one brand of spray paint and make sure to not be so lazy about priming and sanding. The photo doesn't look so bad but it person it is less than beautiful.
 
Luckily the free table decoupage project came out better:

The legs are the same blue as the back of the chair and the music on top is all real sheet music that I found in the piano bench of my free green (now dead) piano. I saved the front covers because they were all really beautiful and I'm going to frame them like art. I think it came out pretty cool.
