Well today is my first day posting, though I could find something every week, I just haven't found the time until today to actually type up the post. A friend needed a ride to a doctors appointment, so I was off fairly early in the morning and drove from one end of town to another. I dropped my friend at the doctors office and told her I would be at the store just down the road, since I don't get to this end of town much, it would be a great way for me to spend the time waiting to visit the thrift shop. As I walked in the door I took a quick glance around at all the outdoor chairs they had by the entrance. And then I noticed the desk chair. Solid wood, in great condition, no arms, slightly similar to a Pottery Barn chair. But no price tag. So I entered and asked the price, after a small conference they said as the furniture was 30% off that day they would just sell it to me for a flat $20.00 (including the discount). I had to think a few minutes, since my husband gets a little out of sorts when I have multi projects going (an understandable case since I tend to start and not finish things :). In the end I decided to take a chance on it.
Would You Buy It? I've already removed the seat and painted it with the Provence Annie Sloan Chalk paint that I used for an Oak Dresser (still need to post that one), but need to wax and distress it a little. Oh, and recover that seat cushion. But I'm glad I bought it.
And just so you know, that's not a fancy effect on the photo above. It had rained and it was sooooo humid outside that my camera lens kept fogging up. I'd wipe it off and try to take a photo, but it would just fog up again. Summer in South Florida!
