Chair Back Graphics

Coming soon.......... yes really.  
The never ending dining room redo is nearing completion.
There is only one "o" in correspond and two "r"s.  
It's spelled wrong.
You can corr, I'm going to coo.
I am not changing it.

I have been working on the
six chair back graphics 
and deciding which transfer method to use.  

The drop cloth has been washed and cut, 
ready to replace this velour type fabric.

All the chair back tacks have been removed.  
All 600 of them. 


 They will NOT be polished to return them to their copper luster.
Mostly because I don't want copper luster.

The vintage bronze patina works for me, since truthfully......
there is no way in helll
I am polishing 600 little tack tops.

The chairs have all been painted and waxed and sanded.


The seat bottoms have been patiently waiting for the backs to be ready.  

Soon they shall wait no more.

  12. Love it, Bliss! Let me know all about the transferring, as I'd like to do some pillows and I am a total idiot when it comes to that kind of thing.

  13. I love the graphics you are going to use on the chair backs! What a great idea. I don't blame you about the tacks. I wouldn't bother changing them either. Besides, isn't patina the in thing these days??? Can't wait to see them when they're ready for their big reveal. Looking good so far. I got mine done pretty quick because I cheated and just used spray paint! Easy peasy since I just wanted basic white. There was no need to get all picky with bright white.

  14. Oh my...they look beautiful so far! And no way I'd polish all those freaking tacks either. My patience only runs so deep... Looking forward to the reveal. :)

    Go Bliss Go!

    With six kids, I wouldn't expect you to have a labor problem regarding the 600 tacks!
    100 for each kid and it will be done before you know it, right? LOL
    Thanks for sharing this adventure with us. I'm doing 6 chairs, too. NO tacks....
    You will be done before i am, for sure.
    Awaiting the reveal......please hurry.....

  28. Bliss,

    Your chairs are going to be beautiful, love the graphic! No way I would be sanding those tacks either and I think the patina will be perfect with that graphic. Good luck and can't wait to see them!

  36. What will we have to look forward to when the big reveal is really revealed :). Love the graphic. I also love that you won't be polishing all 600 tacks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Do you know how long I've been waiting for you to get that dining room done? Since it has been like, forever, I think you should go ahead and polish each and every one of those tacks! Can't wait to see it...

    By the way, I use our family birthdays as decor as well. I call it our family serial number but it is short since we were all born on an 8, or a 9 with the exception of your future daughter-in-law who was is a lonely 14. :)

  38. I didn't think anything of 'coorespond', except that it automatically made me read it with Julia Childs' voice.

    Great graphic.

  39. Progress to be celebrated! No judging here for not polishing those tacks ;-) Love your idea for the seat backs!
