chair find + a hello to my friends.

hey! sorry i was so very bad about blogging this week - i literally feel like all i did was paint, email clients, paint, come up with new painting ideas, and go to a hanson concert. true story. but i love every second of it. being extremely busy is my favorite thing!

anyway, i wanted to show you guys a sweet little treasure that i found this week at one of my favorite thrift store spots. it was only $10. i'm pretty sure that it was brand new, as it still had the plastic on parts of the seat. but, the arm on the right side was in pretty bad shape, so i just simply removed both arms and voila! new chair.

1. i might replace the fabric at some point,but i don't mind the tan weave-look that is going on here...plus, i think the cording is nice.
2. i'm throwing those flowers away now...after looking at this photo, it's safe to say they're dead.

have a great weekend! :)

  2. Very nice! I just saw some chairs by the side of the road and now I may have to go back and see if they are still there. I'm ready for a chair redo myself.

  8. Wow! This makes so much sense! I would have sat there dumbfounded wondering how to get another arm on there and you had the perfect solution. Love it!!!

  10. You should fill in the holes with wood filler and then paint over it. I think it would give it a more finished look.
