My hair chair is finished! Woohoo. I love how it turned out. I put a good amount of work into it. My sewing machine had a hard time with the vinyl, even with the correct needle, but after adjusting the tension it went smoother. Finding metallic paint for plastic was a pain though, I settled on Vaspar spray paint and I was impressed with how cheap and how well it covered. The base actually looks like metal, love the sheen! Thanks goes to my SIL Paige who helped me roll this sucker out our front door and back to our garage, and for doing a good amount of the painting!
I think the worse part was cleaning the 30 years of hair clippings out from under that rubber ring around the base.
This was a project that I didn't really enjoy doing but the end result was totally worth the pain. I destroyed my nails and cut my finger on the zipper while I was trying to make the bottom cushion, thankfully no blood got on it, that would have sucked!
Adelle claims it as her "new chair" and thanked me for it!
Tomorrow is Brett & my anniversary. We are getting finger tattoos to celebrate but we have yet to find a place that will do what I want. I want Brett's name on the inside of my finger but I guess it's a hard place to tattoo. I have to say though that my mind is made up and no one is going to convince me to do something else, I'm a little bitter after going to one place and having them tell me no, and not in the nicest way might I add. Okay, I'm done with that it's time to move on (breath in, breath out!)
I am really excited about next weeks project so make sure that you come back Monday for a sneak peak and maybe a glimpse at my first tattoo!
