Outdated gets Updated

I finally got around to working on a chair I got at Goodwill about 8 months ago.  It was a bargain at $29 and I couldn't pass it up even though it needed some updating.  Today was the day!
I started the update by sanding the brown stained feet and painting them black. While the legs were drying and I was waiting to put the second coat on I removed the old brass tacks.  This proved to be more difficult than I expected.  Those suckers were hammered in there super tight.  After removing 146 tacks I painted the legs one more coat and then replaced the brass tacks with shiny silver tacks...INSTANT UPDATE...ok...not so took me about 3 hours to do the whole update but well worth the time and effort.  
The chair will have a new home in my daughter's apartment next on to the next project!
Outdated to Updated....I feel so accomplished!
