Weekend Makeover

I have to take a break from my vacation posting to show you what I did! Saturday night on my way back from a friend's house I saw two white chairs on the curb.  It was late and my car is tiny so I left them. But I turned around to get them, then decided against it again, then turned back around one more time, I had to have them! So there it was almost 1 in the morning and Jimmy and I are stopped in the middle of the road trying to stuff these chairs in my car. They wouldn't fit so Jimmy carried them all the way to my house! don't worry they are light and it was like 2 minutes from my house.

The chairs were filthy, they had wasps nests all over them and the paint was peeling pretty badly. But I wanted to give them a second chance so I gave them a good scrubbing, sanded off what old paint I could, put a few layers of fresh paint on them, and made them pretty new cushions. And I am pretty happy with how they turned out!

Now that they have had a make-over these pretty little chairs have a new home on my front porch!

  2. I love what you did! That fabric is adorable and goes soo well with the style of the fabric!!
