What Else I Found At The Thrift Store

While at the thrift store on Saturday, I was very excited to find a couple of pieces that caught my eye right away.  One was this chair.  I actually felt, dare I say it, giddy over finding this chair!


For $38.99 it was mine!  The seat and back fabric is vinyl and I will be changing that out to a script fabric that I got a few months ago {or something similar as the script on my fabric is quite large}.  I will also be painting it.  I’m thinking Heirloom White with a glaze.  It does look like it invites a MacKenzie-Childs look with all the detailing and those legs!  Kind of like this.


I don’t think I’d have the patience or steady hand to handle that though. 


The detailing is great and I checked to make sure nothing was loose and everything intact.   Look at those legs!


I was excited to find a chair with so much interest to it, but it is going to the bottom of the “to do” project list!  Au revoir for now chair!

That is just not possible. I seriously need some lessons in how to find the treasures. I went to our local GW to do a post (recently opened) but I couldn't find anything that inspired me enough to write the post! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the chair. Janell

Hi Kathy!
What a great little chair with loads of character. I would have been happy too if I had found it!

I'll be waiting patiently to see what you do with it.


Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

Wow...you MUST paint it like M-C...you don't need a steady hand, just some good painter's tape...and a gold krylon pen to cover any mistakes :-) If you find this chair missing, don't come to my house looking for it

She called it Alice in Wonderland Chic!

This is going to make a nice re-do! I need to find me some small script fabric- all I see is the large print! Visiting from Rhonda's.
