Mission Chair Makeover

My husband is setting up his new office and wanted to have a little different feel than the traditional office furniture.  He's an avid fly fisherman, loves to golf, hike, camp... anything outdoors!  So when we spotted these chairs at a local shop we looked at each other and said "Why not?"  Who says office chairs have to be stuffy?

Loving Black & Tan!

I've always heard people talk about drinking a "Black and Tan" and was never interested in trying one.  But I saw a buffet painted using black on a portion of the piece and the rest left the natural wood.  I loved it!  And I just happened to have a piece that was a perfect candidate for a "Black and Tan" transformation.

This is a very old piece but has been well cared for throughout the years.  The finish inside the drawers was not done as well so I painted the drawer sides and inside the the black paint.   I posted it on my FaceBook page and got tons of comments.  I ended up selling it because I didn't really have a good place to put it when we moved.  I just wanted to share in the event that it gave someone else an idea.  

Wishing you all the best!
