I have great luck when it comes to chairs. I always seem to find them on the cheap. This ladder back chair was $6.99 and I was lucky enough to snag 2!
The chairs are structurally sound and the rush seating is pretty close to perfect other than a thick layer of dust.
Wednesday I admitted I have a wee-bit of an obsession with chairs. I also mentioned that I had a few other projects up my sleeve.
Let’s meet Ella shall we. When I walked into my local thrift shop I spotted this beauty instantly. It was the perfect lil’ vintage dresser I’d been looking for and it was love at first site.
She was in good shape..not a wibble nor a wabble.
Her top had seen better days but with a little love & TLC she’d be good as (almost) new.
Isn’t she lovely? I used Valspar’s Signature Paint and Primer; Fleecy which is a warm white & Lincoln Cottage Black which is a velvety gray/black. Hardware got hit with Rust-Oleum’s Hammered Gold.
She may not be perfect…
but in my eyes she’s pretty darn close.
Next topic: Lighting…on a (tight) budget.
And look at this photo taken way back before I had any photo-takin’ knowledge. Oh so grainy!

About 2 weeks ago I revealed the progress I’ve made in our Living Room. In some of the photos you may or many not have noticed my little end table. Here’s a pic of her undressed.
