The Painted Chair Affair

Our local art gallery, The Corner Gallery has several fundraising events every year.  This year I joined in on all the fun.  For the entire month of June 2014 we had hand painted chairs set up in the gallery. 

It all started with a last minute phone call! It was Wednesday afternoon and the chairs were due Friday morning.  Well, I can tell you I don't need much convincing to run down to the Salvation Army Hdqrs in Healdsburg.  Any olde reason will due. But this was for charity!  A really good excuse!  So of course, I called my daughter, I would be tarred and feathered if I went without her. We took off for the 45 minute ride south on Hwy 101. 

Waiting for us were the perfect chairs!!! Unfortunately, we were in such a hurry we forgot about taking the before photos! Here's what they looked like less than 48 hours later.

It was so much fun. Of course next year I'll be able to plan on painting a chair and won't be so hurried, a whole year ahead to plan is so luxurious.
