We need more chairs in our house,
like we need another dog (we have 4),
but I have a fetish for both chairs and dogs,
and I have a few old grain sacks
that I’ve been wanting to turn into seat cushions,
so I *had* to find some chairs
that would be just right for the project.
As Goldilocks would say,
“Ahhh, this chair is just right.”
I just love the emblems & names on
these old sacks.
The seat cushion looked like this
when I got it.
See why it was a candidate for a makeover?
It was begging for help.
I replaced the nasty cushion with the grain sack,
but it still seemed to need “something”.
Then I remembered that I had some old
hand-crocheted lace trim.
Someone spent a lot of time and effort
stitching this trim – it’s just lovely.
Now, I’d like your opinion – I thought the chair
was a little too plain, but my oldest son wasn’t
crazy about the crochet trim.
So…which way do you think looks best –
With or without the trim?
at a thrift store. I don’t normally pay
more than a few bucks for chairs,
but I knew they’d be perfect for
the grain sacks, so I shelled out
a whoppin’ 8 bucks each for them.
I’ll wait for warmer weather to paint the brown chair –
unless I get a wild hair in the middle of the night
and just can’t stand to leave it until spring.
Then, I’ll go fire up the heater in my paint booth
and pull and all-nighter fixing it up.
I’ve done weirder things in the middle of the night.
So, Goldilocks can take her pick at my house.
I have lots of chairs for her to choose from!
