Warning... This post is going to be obnoxious and braggy.
On a regular drive by of our local resale store (don't I sound tough) I spotted a bamboo chair just sitting right out front... just sitting there... with people walking past her... like she didn't have a beacon of sun shining down on her! No one was even in a hair pulling, drop down, drag out fight over her!
I jumped out of the still moving car and did a triple roll and landed swiftly in the chair and refused to move until I knew she was mine!
Ok, that might not be quite how it all went down.... but it was close. There was no price tag on the chair when I walked up though so I had to carry it around until I found someone to help me and he looked at me and then at the chair and goes.... How about $10?
$10?! How about I give you $20 just because today is outstanding?!
And then she was mine...
Not to pretty in brown and old fabric but oooohhhh the possibilities!
I decided to go with a gray Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and then distress and use dark and light waxes. I had some fabric on hand that I used but will probably be changing it out with my bedroom redo:)
First I took off the seat to paint...
Once I was all done with paint I took my trusty staple gun and stapled my fabric all the way around and then screwed the seat back on- the only thing that could have made all of this any better was if there had been two!
Once she is in her final place I will post an update on fabric-
Hope you are having a fabulous day!
