Vin Rouge

so here are the first pictures of the Vin Rouge project. I was beginning to get a bit nervouse about the color, but it has been approved!

this is a picture of what I've painted so far. I started with the back just in case the color looked like cr*p. it's starting to grow on me though...

at this point there are FIVE coats of Vin Rouge plus the primer on what you see. As a comparison, I only had to use 3 coats plus the primer on the NY Adirondacks. Speaking of those, they are getting picked up tomorrow! I'm rather excited to hear from the person getting them on what they think when they see them in person.

I like "The Vin Rouge Project". It sounds like a punk band. This paint really looks better in natural light. Not quite as purple. I like the green better, but a nice deep blue would really be good!

I think the color's pretty. They sure need a lot of painting though. Whew! You're very patient...

I like the name, too...it looks like nail polish. Dang, that's a teeeny brush to be painting chairs with...hee hee.
