i had a good hit at goodwill the other day. i found this chair for $10.00. i have been looking for a chair to put in my entry. my front room is a slow work in progress. i loved this chair. the spindles on the top, the lines and curves, the legs. it was sturdy and functional, the only thing was that the paint was peeling, the plastic seat didnt belong on this beautiful chair and there were dog bite marks on the legs. i bought it!
i sanded it down one evening and gave it a good painting. i covered it up with some leftover fabric from my curtains (still work in progress) and it was as good as new.
here is before:
and after :
those are my curtains draped there on the bench. i need to hang those awesome square tins i found... work in progress i tell you. :)
now let me ask all ya'll for some advise.
just fyi, i still need to paint my walls. seeing my curtains, do you have any suggestions? paint scares me.
and i found this awesome buffet that is in my entry, at first, when i bought it i wanted to paint it. im not too fond of the gold around the edges. but now that its home, i dont want to/dont have time to paint the thing. should i , or shouldnt i.??? im painting the mirror a deep red. and of course when that is done i can get to finding awesome vintage accessories to go atop the buffet and piano.
i am a mom. i love to cook. i spell words wrong. i listen to patsy cline. i am a small town girl at heart.i wish i could knit. i am a mormon. i never make my bed. i love to create something out of nothing. i love all things vintage. i never want to forget the simple things in life... so i write about them.
