I’m not sure how I have missed it before, but I just discovered the discount paint stand at Bunnings on the Sunday just gone. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t looking for paint, nor did I need it but if there is a bargain to be had then I am generally there, scrounging through.

I find the justification of ‘need’ will always come after.

So as you can imagine I got home with my new charcoal paint pot ($3!) and vivid white pot ($2!) looking for something to paint.

By coincidence I had another impulse purchase from last year sitting in various parts of the house, each waiting for a face lift.

4 x timber bentwood chairs from the charity shop (that’s stain never quite went with anything in the house).

One chair became my test case last night and I am pretty happy with the results. It goes quite nicely with my other weekend project (with help from Dad) a new timber log table.

With three more chairs to go I think I might head back to the discount stand and do something different with them. Will keep you posted with how I go.
