This is an old chair I picked up that someone was throwing away. It needed some TLC which amounted to sanding, gluing, and painting.

I painted it an old white and hand painted the seat and stenciled the chair back.

 I did another set of the Mr. Right and Mrs. Always Right chairs. They make wonderful shower gifts or prop for wedding pictures!

Paris Table and Sewing Chair

Two of the projects I worked on last week were some I rescued from 2 different sales I went to.  The shabby avocado table came from an auction.  It was hand made and needed love. I paid 2.00 for it and was happy as a lark to get it.  I had to scrap all the paint off which I normally don't do I usually use bonding primer. The paint on this desk was peeling and I didn't want to take a chance that it would scab up (ewww ugly word usage) and bite me later so I scrapped and I think I even burned up a few calories in the process which is always a plus for me! lol

 The sweet little chair was purchased at a yard sale for 50 cents.  The seat lifts up to store sewing notions.  It is a darling little size and I passed it up...imagine that me passing on a 50 cent item who can figure. But when I went back to the sale it looked so forlorn just sitting there that I took pity on it and brought it home to make over. Second chances are a blessing.

I think they go together like peas and carrots!
