A little while back I found this chair at a thrift store for $10.00 .
Don’t you love the mix of plaids ?
The arms were loose and there was a chip out of the wood on one of the arms . But I thought it had some potential and the price was right .
I repaired the loose arms with some wood glue and some screws , filled in the chipped spot with wood putty and painted her with Simply White Cee Cee Caldwell chalk and clay paint.
That’s right ! I painted it right in the middle of my living room . By the fireplace and the TV . Call me crazy !
I usually paint in the sun room or my work room , but it was cold that day and it just felt better in the living room .
I didn’t spill anything !
Anyway this is how it turned out …
A friend gave me the ticking fabric and I had just enough to finish this chair .
Took it down to our “Sweetie Pie Cottage “ booth at Lovejoy’s.
An guess what ?
It sold !
Woo Hoo !
Pam and I are heading out tomorrow to do some thrift stores and flea markets and see what we can find to fix up and resale .
