Ted Bear made these chairs and stools as a housewarming gifts for Angie and Mark. They are made of cedar , so they will age to a gray. The kids could even paint them if they like. We have to keep them here till Angie is moved into their new home. Which , I know they are hoping for before winter. Mark did the wiring and plumbing of the house and Angie and I are doing the painting. We have two small halls, one bath, one closet, and touch up in the kitchen to go. I can't seem to get Angie to not get too far ahead of me....as I am the one doing the cutting in. If she paints too fast , it's a lot of up/down the ladder for me, so we do not get what is called hatband effect. I think the girl is in a hurry.:):) She does her teaching job, zumba instructing, and then works on the new house. Her husband , Mark, works his plumbing jobs, then he works on the house. Needless to say, I'll be soooo happy for it to all be done. xo
What great chairs. Also such a nice thing to do for your daughter. Sounds like she keeps pretty busy.ReplyDelete
How beautiful are those
"made with love chaises"! After all of the hard work and effort that's going on around there, everyone will need one of those perfect loungers!
The chairs are beautiful. Great job.ReplyDelete
I am not one for climbing up and sown ladders either. ;-)
The chairs are awesome! Nothing harder than preparing to move and the actual move. Best wishes to all.ReplyDelete
he MADE those? amazing! i am always so in awe of things handmade. my dear sarge was NOT talented in that way, nor am i. they should last a lifetime and what a wonderful thing to have always!ReplyDelete
I've wanted a couple of those Adironick for several years, but still none :(ReplyDelete
Those are just gorgeous, I like the fact that the stool is seperate from the chair, makes it easier to slide into.
My daughter has been remodeling her home, for going on five years....yes, five years, I know firsthand what kind of effort it takes !
You are a sweet and caring lady, to help so...
Your Ted is a remarkable craftsman. These are beautiful chairs Susie.ReplyDelete
What beautiful chairs, Susie! They are destined to become family heirlooms! Painting is hard work! Take it easy on the ladder. I know you will be glad when it is done.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful gift and the fact that Ted made them himself just adds to their value.ReplyDelete
