Tossed and Turned Tuesday- Green Chair Reveal

Could it be??? Is it true?? Is this little chair now blue?

This was the little green chair that I fell in love with last week. He almost made the bulk trash pick up that week but I saved him. Here he is before:

Now let's see what was wrong with him:
1.) Missing a piece of wood over leg/ nicks and scratches
2.) Cracked wood down the center needed piece of duct tape to keep from pinching.
3.) Peep hole in two places in the chair. Would be fine if this was a door but it's not.
Final Product, after wood filling, sanding, and painting.
Since the "before" chair had the duct tape for YEARS I thought it only added character to the chair so I painted a couple of white stripes in memory of the "tape".
Hope you like it as much as I do. Oh and Brianna already called dibs on this chair. It's going in her room!

Tell me what you think!
Have a good Tuesday,
Rita :)
