Paint Party Friday.....burned and painted these chairs....







I even made a special little Gratitude Box for us.......and don't the chairs look happy with their new view!

Hi Everyone....I am so excited to share with you some chairs I burned and then painted. My husband made me these wooden Muskoka Chairs and I loved them plain....but I wanted to do something with them and every time I work with wood....you know me ...I love to bring out my wood burning tools....and I went to town on these chairs and I love the way they turned out and they look amazing up at the Cottage....

I love the scent of wood burning and the relaxation of just burning wood....plus how super cool does it sound to tell people you are working on some new wood and pyrography pieces....lol....

I am sharing my newly painted and burned chairs with all of my super talented friends over at Paint Party Friday......what a super fun place to meet new artists from around the world....

Happy Friday Everyone....and Happy Creating!

Awesome chairs! Your husband and you are quite the creative team! I haven't tried wood burning, but now you've intrigued me.
Enjoy relaxing in the beauty you've created. Happy PPF!

I love these. We just got some chairs like this. Not as nice as yours but they need some paint or something. What a clever idea.Now if I only knew how to burn wood like this. :)Happy PPF

your chairs are beautiful. i absolutely love adirondack chairs (not sure if they are the same as Muskoka chairs but they look similar) and we keep brightly colored ones along the shore as well.

Love the gratitude box as well!

They came out fabulously. And that view from your deck makes me long for Summer. Your husband is very clever, making those chairs as well.

Stunning work :D Although I know better, I have this image of you sitting there with a magnifying glass and burning that way :D

Very creative way of bringing some personal touch to your furniture (although Hubby made them, can't get much more personal than that :D, but now you've added your touch, so it is a truly combined piece of art).

Happy PPF!

These are great! Love how fun and happy the design is. And I am super jealous of having a husband that can make something so gorgeous and useful.

The chairs are wonderful - your husband did a wonderful job building and you did a wonderful job "arting" (not a word I guess!!!). As queen of the tools - I have wood burning tools and have never used them. I will get to them someday (LOL).

Lynn said...

Who knew? What a cool thing to do, and do it so well as you've done here. Have fun sitting in them looking out at that water way. Now that is cool too! HPPF!!
