The Beauty of Old Things

I love old things-things with a story, a history, a previous life. I found a vintage patio set this weekend-3 chairs and a table. I had intended to strip it bare and paint it red, but once I started stripping it, all these incredible colors started coming through-Red, yellow, green! These chairs had been painted at least 5 times over the years.

The madness will stop with me! I'm knocking off the rough edges and spraying it with polyurethane.
