A New Life for a Chair

I have been searching for a chair that I can use in my office.  I search all these blogs and these ladies find the best stuff.  I on the other hand have scoured Craigslist, my usual thrift stores (did I say usual?)  and found nada.  zip. 

Until Wednesday.  I happened to be across town, got turned around and there was a thrift store!  Of course I stopped.  This is what I found:


For $2.98 it came home with me!  I also found the wine rack there, that I already shared.

Armed with my spray primer and heirloom white spray paint, I got started.  If you have seen any of my projects, you know what comes next…sanding and glazing.  I am hooked on the glaze!

Primed & Painted


And here it is with some new fabric – I love this fabric!

All done

Look at the fabric:


I just love that fabric!  Anyway, the chair will go in my office aka mom cave.

Thanks for looking.  Please comment and follow!

Funky Junk's Saturday Nite Special


Red, White & Blue

I have hit an all time low.  Yesterday, while visiting a thrift store I came across this gem.  I would love to know the history behind this baby. 

I am not sure my plan just yet.  Should I modge-podge, paint a funky color, distress in either white or black?? …decisions.

Before you write me off and send me to Crazy Town, know that I paid $4 for the table.  I figure I can practice something new without freaking!

The Gem

What should I do?  And no, I am not throwing it away!!
