Hand-painted Dutch Back Bee Chair

Every woman needs the perfect little black dress; every home needs the perfect little black chair. Here it is! A great little black chair for a corner or desk. Hand-painted (by me); based with black, distressed on edges. The bee design in the middle is a golden yellow. The text says, "Where you are is your home."

This little beauty started out as an allover white chair that someone had severely over-distressed. After a base coat of satin black, it was given a light distressing to allow some of the old white paint to peek through.

Afterwards, the bee graphic from the Graphics Fairy (  was hand-painted in the middle of the seat. It turned out even more alluring than I imagined.
