Over the weekend Sister and I did some Treasure hunting . We hit an antique show and a few flea markets . I didn’t find a lot of stuff , but what I did find I am happy with .
I have been looking for some Frenchy chairs for some time but haven’t had much luck finding anything with the right shape in a price I could afford . As we walked by this one booth for the second time , Pam said “ What about this one ?” And in this booth piled high with stuff buried under more stuff , was this little beauty.
As you can see I started taking the trim off before it dawned on me to take a before picture .
Here you can see what the trim that was on the front looked like before I took it off .
Isn't she sweet ? I have her finished in my mind . Painted white , recovered in a bleached out drop cloth fabric with French graphics on it. the only thing I could have wished for was a little carving in the wood . But hay ! It only cost me $29.00 ! It is in excellent condition , just the wrong color .
I’ll show her again when I have her done .
I also found this wire storage basket . Have I told you I have this thing about wire and metal baskets ?
See how nice it fits under my island !
That’s it ! That’s all I found . I spent a total of $35.00 including tax . So I was pleased . Now I can’t wait to get started on my French chair . Does anyone know an easy way to get all those old staples out of the old upholstery ?
By the way !
Happy Valentine's Day !
