Orange You Glad I Did? A Chair Rescue

 

Hey friends! Enjoying this beeee-utiful sunshine? Me too!

Well the blogosphere has been a-buzz with spring home tours, creative and oh-so-cute Easter crafts and beautiful tablescapes.

Me? Not so much.

I’ve been on a rescue mission.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What can I say? I am a sucker for a sad, neglected piece of furniture.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And this one said ‘I could be pretty, if you want me’. How could I say no?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s just be honest, she had me at $7.99.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her shoes needed to be replaced…

 

 

 

 

 

 

She needed a little filler here and there…

 

 

 

 

 

 

…And a good exfoliation

 

 

 

 

 

 

A couple of coats of paint later and she’s a beautiful pop of sunshine colour!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Truth is, she was a beautiful chair in her rough state. But like any rescue, a little love and attention and she turned into the real beauty that she always was.
