PICASSO ART CHAIR
Picasso Art Chair
Several weeks ago, Ro Brun of Ro brun Art posted a fantastic chair that she had re-furbished. I was so impressed that I immediately e-mailed her and asked for permission to downright copy her idea! She was so gracious. Actually,I tried hard not to copy what she did. I tried to do my own thing by using squares but they didn’t look right. I also made a point not to even look back at her post but those circles she used kept popping into my head. I have to admit the two chairs do look similar.
Basically what Ro did was to take an old rundown office chair (mine was a leftover from my parents bar) and go to town painting it with acrylics. After the chair dried she used a mat varnish on it and it’s ready for many more years of wear. Now that is what I call recycling. One of Ro’s friends had just taken a similar old chair to the curb for pickup and when she saw what Ro had done, she brought it right back into her house to paint. Thanks for the inspiration Ro, you’re the greatest.
