Blogger meetup

A couple weeks ago I had a fun opportunity to meet up with blogger Kim of EF eDesigns.  Kim has just recently decided to discontinue the blog updates on the site for her design company, but still is continuing to blog on her own personal site.  This little get-together came about because she did a post about possibly re-staining or painting a vintage desk chair she had found on CL for $25!
I asked her to let me bring over some Howard's Restor-A-Finish and Feed-N-Wax to see how it looks before doing all that work to refinish it.  We had a great night with wine, Howard products, and her adorable pup!
And here is the chair after a couple coats of the good stuff.  Doesn't it look shiny?
And here is Kim, who looks like Nicole Kidman.  She doesn't see it, but I'm convinced! 
I hear she's going to give an update on the chair on her blog soon, I really hope the Howard products were tough enough to save her some work.  So...does anyone else want to get together for furniture restoration and booze?  I'm game!

  4. You're more than welcome to come to Indianapolis, I've got a dining table that I want to redo similar to yours, a china cabinet and a little console! PLUS I work for an alcohol distributor, so I'd have plenty of booze ha!

  9. Whenever you head to the Lou, keep me in mind - I've got plenty of old wood for you to buff. Okay, that sounded reeeeally dirty.

    The chair looks amazing, I need to try that stuff out on my office chair.

  10. How cool! Her house looks super-cute, too (just like she is - I can see the N.K. resemblance!)
