I found this chair at the flea market.
And as you can see I started taking the trim off before I remembered to take a before picture.
Well now she has a new look…
I painted her Cotton Whisper by Behr then gave her a clear Briwax , then a light coat of Tudor Brown Briwax to show off her curves.
I did a CitriSolv transfer technique on the front panel of the back , I darkened the outline of the graphic from the Graphic Fairy with a Sharpie fabric pin .
I used drop cloth fabric that I bleached for the cover.
Then sat her in the corner of my living room .
She seems very happy there …
I’m happy to have her there !
The best part is while shopping Saturday I found another chair in a booth in one of my local
haunts flea markets. I asked the lady at the desk if the person selling it would possibly take any less , ( she was only asking $45.00 , but I thought it was worth a try. ) So she tried to call her , but she wasn’t home . she took my name and phone number and said she would call me and let me know . When she called me later she told me she would take $38.00. Yea !! She is holding it till tomorrow for me . It’s very similar to this with a little carving on it and a little padding on the arms . I have been wanting these for a very long time and couldn’t fine them anywhere , then I find 2 in less than two weeks at fantastic prices .
It was really dirty and dusty , so I brought it home and soaked it in sudsy water for a little while then rinsed and dried it , it has a bisque finish and now it is lovely. Cost me a whole $2.00 !
Someone up there knows my pocketbook isn’t very deep and is watching out for me .
I’ll show you the other chair when I get it home .
Thanks for stopping by today . Have a great week !
