She said to me, “let’s do an art project”! I had just been on a home tour with a friend and in one of the kitchens on the tour there was this painted stool with words and colors all over it. I remembered a chair from my parents kitchen that had been sitting in our garage for years. So I headed to the garage to retrieve it. Then headed to my paint cupboard and brought out every color of paint I could find. That day
“The Painted Chair” was given life.
I knew with each stroke of paint that day that this chair was going to be more than
just a painted chair. . .
It was going to become a chair of
“memories”. . .
At the end of the day we both signed the chair and made this rule, before you could sign the chair you
had to have made something in our kitchen. It could be as simple as
brewing a pot of coffee. . .
Thus began the journey of
“The Painted Chair”.
That was 7 years ago and today the chair tells a story of everyone who has passed through our kitchen
Life for me is all about creating history and memories with friends and family. And I know one day this chair is going to
read like a history book. . .
