A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Another....Chair....

Saturday, February 13, 2010


In the midst of staple pulling, kid IV's, dog vomiting tampons, and T working in another city, I happened to find and redo a fabulous chair.

I have no idea where I am going to put this chair. Although I took a whole car load of stuff to GW, so you would think I could find somewhere to put it.
Someone already started to sand it...and gave up. The pattern on the fabric is nice, but unless you like the smell of rats and dirt then you would want to replace it too.

Oh, it was $3.99.

It's got a great pair of legs.

I sprayed with Rustoleum Heirloom White and roughed it up, a lot. I used a teensy bit of fabric that was $9.99/yard that I just could not resist. It was probably $2 worth of fabric.
I added batting that I got for free from a woman that I helped at St. Vincent's Thrift Store. She gave me a ton just for helping her bring her stuff in!

Isn't she pretty?!
I love the back. I wish I had 4 more of these.....oohhh, all in different colors...with a fabric that matches but isn't the same.....sitting around my dining room table. Now I'm on a mission....

Beautiful! I am new to the "repurposing" world and recently found your blog. I have really enjoyed it and laughed so hard about the dog and the tampons. Glad to hear our dog isn't the only one...........

you have created a true beauty!

is this the chair you got just recently? you work so fast. i was cracking up as i was reading your post - because there we were both you & i on twitter - you answering me back on your side bar. too funny. oh dear, lord what a day!
so glad for some quiet mommy time.
hope your little one feels better soon. i used to get ear infections all the time so i hate it even more when the little ones get it.

really, your chair is just gorgeous! you should be so proud of the end result, and the price!

I know a great place you could put it... MY house :). I can't believe you got it for $3.99! I am on the lookout for mix-matched chairs and this would totally go with. Just letting you know it would be in great company at my house :). Enjoy your new re-furbished char! It looks great~

P.S. I spray painted two knobs in my kitchen ORB tonight, and am going to see how they hold up to every day wear and tear... They look so good I don't really care if they suck, I can just touch up every so often :). Thank you so much for that suggestion. Also, I am really planning on making an island in my kitchen and I have the perfect dresser for it too! http://www.justforrachel.com/2009/07/my-dresser.html here is the link to it, I just don't know if I want to ruin this dresser. Okay one more thing, you said you have the subway tile you are going to put in your kitchen...what color grout were you planning on using? I used white, but I really don't love it, I wish I had a grout that would make the white pop more. I don't know. Sorry for this crazy long comment! I promise to you give you all sorts of linky love when I post about all your great suggestions!!!

I am definitely a leg girl and I love those. What a pretty chair. I couldn't have resisted it, either. I also love the color choice and fabric. Great job, as always!
