Art ..... Interrupted

Hi everyone!
Well, I'd love to be showing off some new paintings or needlework but my art has been temporarily interrupted by LIFE!
I have 2 daughters going to Prom this month & 1 daughter graduating next month so needless to say I've been BUSY dress shopping, getting announcements & invitations ready to mail, planning the Open House party & doing as many projects around the house as I can to get it looking good for guests!
My artwork will just have to be put on hold for a little while.
In the meantime, one of my projects is a wonderful OLD chair I got for $12 at an antique store a few weeks ago (pictured above).  It's a great old chair ~ solid & sturdy & even flips over to make a handy-dandy step stool!  I'm painting it black & putting it by the fireplace in our kitchen opposite our antique black rocking chair. I've already ordered a neat wool-hooked chair pad for it & I'm picturing an old quilt folded up & tucked in the little shelf underneath!
Can't wait to get it done!  I'm almost there after hours of sanding, priming & about 7 coats of black paint! ugh... All that's left is the varnish!  I'll post before & after pics in a few days. 
 I just love buying old things & making them NEW again!

Well, when life calls, you have to answer, right? I hope your daughters have a great time at the prom. :)

Can't wait to see the chair when you're done with it!
