I just cannot pass up a great deal!
I found this little gem on my favorite place to look...facebook yardsale.
The lines drew me in...I just knew it could be beautiful! You all ever have a vision and just know what something will look like when you finish it? Well, that was me when I saw this!
I know you know what I did next...
Yep! Whipped up some chalk paint and went to town!
Wouldn't this be a nice cabinet for a tv?
One knob was missing so I added the glass knobs. They make everything look so much prettier!
The detail is perfect...kind of simple but with a touch of the perfect shabbiness.
Now on to another project. I got this little beauty for a free swap from a sweet lady. I thought this chair was just absolutely beautiful!
I carried her all over the house looking for a place to put her with no luck. She just didn't fit in with all of my white. After saying that I was not going to paint her, I finally broke down and did it.
Loved it! But then I noticed that
there was blue on the seat, like it was blue jeans or something. I got my woolite cleaner and went to town scrubbing it. I did the back and the arms too, but the seat
turned more blue!!!
My heart sank....I cleaned it again and it turned even more blue. I knew it had to have something under the tapestry and I wasn't about to rip out all of those tacs to fix it. So guess what I did?
More chalk paint...I am smiling really BIG right now because I know that some people are calling me crazy!
But hey, it was free and needed some work. Not like it was in perfect condition and worth lots of money.
For now, I am trying to find the perfect spot for her and planning on keeping it.
So stay tuned to see what else I decide to paint and where she'll end up.
