A Chair for the Arts

Our small town is home to The McCoy Community Center for the Arts.  The McCoy has exposed us to some pretty cool shows over the years – Martin Short, Sara Evans, LeAnn Rimes to name a few. 

So when my girlfriend and McCoy board member texted me and asked if I would donate a piece of furniture to the silent auction at their Hidden Talent event, my reaction was – Yes.

A few minutes passed and it hit me…what on earth could I donate?

This dining chair was brought back to life with a French finish.  I layered several colors of paint, sanding in between and finished it off with a stain.

The seat was covered in a simple and neutral drop cloth.

The French pillow compliments the chair and aids in the look I was working toward.

The Hidden Talent Event is this evening.  It features local talent by New Albany residents.  Not sure my chair qualifies as a hidden talent, but I am happy to support The McCoy and all it offers our community.

Have a great weekend!
