As you all know, I love all things beach! Most of all, I love chippy and well-loved furniture in my favorite color (blue)!
Here’s a little chair that I worked on last week:
|Beach Cottage Blue Chair (After)|
I’m not sure if you can tell, but it is the prettiest shade of blue – ASCP Louis Blue – it reminds me of a perfect summer’s day sky (with not a cloud in sight).
Here’s what the chair looked like before:
It is a very heavy maple chair with metal feet. I think it must be from the 30s or 40s. Does anyone know? I love the details of the legs, but I thought the delicate curves kind of disappeared in the wood.

It is the kind of chair that would be great with a heavy wooden desk or in a cottage bedroom with a pile of summer reads on top. I was tempted to keep this one, but my Beach Cottage Blue Chair is looking for a new home. As long as I can get Conor off it!
