The words painting chairs with no limits will be burned into my heart forever. Recently I came across a talented young man with a message that he was spreading nation wide. His message was #NOLIMITS. Words so powerful that it brought me to tears. Such an inspiration to so many! Meet Andy Arnold, an inspiring young artist.

Painting Chairs With No Limits
When I heard about Andy and his mission for helping the disabled veterans, I just knew I had to meet this young man. “I’m Andy Arnold, CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Andy’s Chairs.” These were the first words Andy said to me as he extended his hand out with a firm handshake followed by a HUGE hug. Let me just say, this young man means business with a heart of gold.
His Mission Painting Chairs
Meet Carolyn Arnold. Mom and COO (Chief Operations Officer) of Andy’s Chairs. What a dynamic duo these two are. Carolyn is also an artist and has mentored Andy and his love of painting chairs.

Even with disabilities. 100% of the proceeds from the sales of these amazing one of a kind designs goes to Project healing Waters.

Let’s Paint Chairs
I was so excited when Andy accepted my invite to come and paint one of his famous chairs on a Facebook LIVE with me and Dixie Belle Paint Co. Andy had told me that he had used Dixie Belle Paint Products before and really loved the paint, but had never tried using gilding wax. I knew exactly what he needed to add to his arsenal of finishes.
Introducing Andy To Gilding Wax | Finger Painting
Painting chairs was his jam, but more importantly was his message to others! It didn’t take long for Andy to grab the GOLD out of all the colors of gilding wax that Dixie Belle had to offer. He had a vision and knew exactly how he wanted the chair to look. Didn’t I tell you he had a heart of GOLD?

Super Man Andy! Painting Chairs
And that is exactly how I feel about this young man. A super man with his heart and willingness to help others and certainly inspires everyone that he comes intact with. I had the pleasure to sit and chat with Andy in private that night about his chairs. He told me that God created humanity (mankind) just like he was creating chairs for disabled veterans. PEOPLE, take notice of this heart! We are all humans and we should treat all of humanity with dignity and respect. Thank you Carolyn (MOM) for allowing me to experience the heart of an angel.
