From a Goodwill Find
This little chair has a lot of patience. I had found it quite a while back and knew it would eventually be made new as a farmhouse kitchen chair and find a home in my kitchen.
It has the sweetest lines!
When finding a chair at a thrift store or garage sale the most important thing is to note whether it is sturdy. This little chair is very well built and the joints are wonderfully strong.
It just needed a facelift.
I thought at first I’d paint it red, but then changed my mind. Who knows, she may become red in another life!
I wanted a brighter color with a slight patina.
So I chose an old white and added some patina with glazed burnt amber and crackle glaze. LOVE that stuff!
I also wanted to use this wonderful French grainsack fabric
I found this fabric on Decor Steals! I’d also found my wonderful Peacock Park Designs Tattoo mat there. They always have marvelous and beautiful bargains.
I was doing double duty today – baking bread.
My daughter is having some of her close friends over to spend the night and they always want my Potato Soup and this time in bread bowls.
I thought the bread would give the air of a warm Farmhouse kitchen…
Not to mention how wonderful the fragrance of the bread was!
My little chair is looking at home now by the desk.
Now back to more projects. While I’ve got the paint out there are a couple of other things I wanted to work on.
Love creative moments on beautiful days!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I took a quick stroll through the garden and am thrilled to see all the wonderful Daffodils and Snowdrops – spring is definitely trying to make her mark!
