Sewing chair




I found this old chair at Goodwill for $4.98
. I've been wanting to find a chair to put downstairs at my sewing desk, so I snagged it up.







Dave and I are a little photography-obsessed these days, so I actually made it into a picture. That doesn't happen very often. Unless my dad is visiting, of course. :)

I got a coat of spray primer on the chair, and Simon and I got the cover off the seat cushion. I want to find some cute fabric to recover it with. I am picturing a white chair, with some sort of large plaid fabric. But maybe it should be blue...or yellow gold. I haven't tried those color spray paints before.

Fun! I love projects like this. I've been in the mood to thrift shop... maybe next week. :o)

Does Dave like taking photos too?

So fun! Man I can't wait to come see your house, so many new things to see! :)
Looks like Si is a good helper.

Yes, Dave loves photography - he doesn't have the time that I do to learn photoshop, but he loves to take pictures. He's pretty artistic, and usually his shots turn out better than mine. :)

I'm getting ready to redo one of my chairs. I think I'm going to paint it turquoise and do a large black and white floral print for the seat. It's a little out there but that's what I want. I like the idea of yellow gold...

I about had a heart attack when I realized that you weren't painting it black. Are you feeling okay?

I love your creative abilities! White and plaid, now I like that. I have to agree with Christina though - sure your feeling ok?

Sorry I won't be there this next week. Life keeps throwing us lemons so I'm working on some lemonade. I'll be praying for a great DVBS. Hi to everyone.

Yes, I'm feeling fine. :)

We'll miss you, Marti!
