They always come back!

I have decided I needed to throw in a project for this week.  I have so much spinning in my mind. I am so excited to share and reach out to all you new bloggers. I hope so far you are enjoying and learning. Lots more to come TRUST me, you don't want to miss.

For years now I have had roosters in my kitchen, even in our South Florida home, where everyone else was doing palm trees and shells.
I do from time to time remove them, add something else, and then they make their way back.  I suppose I just like them! As many of us do out here in blog land.
I gave you a sneak peek of something last week...remember?
Did you guess yet?
Sometimes the simplest thing can be an inspiration, without even realizing it.
As these once black stools, then painted raspberry red, sat in my garage.
That trip to HOBBY LOBBY had done my brain some good.
Again, husband scared, not knowing, what will I do next....he waited patiently for the end result.
Much to his surprise, I guess, I came up with something pretty good! Mike does know I am creative, and I can come up with some good stuff...he also worries first what it will cost him and second, what I am cluttering up.
Now if you noticed how I taped these chairs off, I did the entire chair as though each square would be painted....however, I skipped some in between, made it random, and not so busy..COUGH!
I am pretty tickled with the end result.
I have painted and been creative in the past with many furniture pieces while living in Florida.  This is the first time since living here in the Carolina's that I have done furniture with a twist. I adore painted furniture of any kind, with art work on it.  I forgot how much I love to do it myself, and will be continuing on this path.  One problem though, I have to buy the furniture.
I may sand these chairs some more to give a real rustic look. For now, I am liking them shiny and new.

I love the way they turned out. Skipping a few squares gives them just the right not too perfect feel.

The bar stools look good.
I think the roosters always come home to roost...and we're glad they did.
~I love painted furniture too, I've posted a re-do on my blog a few weeks ago.

So super cute Debbie! They really just add so much charm to your already charming kitchen. I also wanted to tell you once again how great I think you are for doing the new blogger features and all of the helpful hints for those just starting out. I could have used that when I started, thats for sure! :-)

Very cute. I like the skipping squares idea. Mike should be getting scared about now. Who knows what else you'll paint.

BTW, is that a laundry/mud room off your kitchen that I spied in that one photo. I thought I could see a utility sink in there (not that I'm a stalker or anything). I'm on the lookout for a good solution to hiding my ugly "slop" sink and I thought you might have one.

They came out amazing! I like the way the squares are not uniform in shape. It gives it a more artistic appeal.

Perfect... but you must get out of the house. You must be running low on paint. These turned out very nicely and are perfect and oh, so modern and up-to-date looking.

I am loving the French Country look of those stools. I thought you were going to paint them white? It is just nice to have something bright and shiny sometimes, you can always dull it down later, if you want to.
Looks great, keep painting.

Hey- Guess what!?! With kids around they will get a rustic used look in no time at all...enjoy the "new" while you can. Those are darling. I love them. I always think of you and Kim (Savvy SStyle) when I see roosters now. Just can sit on those roosters and EAT chicken. Imagine that! Hugs- Diana

I love these! They turned out great. Love the idea of a little sanding so they are not so perfect. I learned to love Roosters the past few years when we moved into a town with chickens and roosters roaming the streets (hence the blog name). Now, I'm one of those crazy rooster ladies always searching HL, thrift stores, etc. looking for rooster themed stuff. I need a 12 step program!
