If you can "Imagine It", it will happen.
Turning a thrift store find into something special is so rewarding.
I wanted a spot in my bedroom, to sit and do my needle work for quite some time, so I hit the garage sales and thrift stores.
Found it!! $5.00 is a good price!
The paint on this chair was so old and sticky so I had to do a bit of prep work before painting. Also I had to remove the side panels of rattan or what ever it was?
After removing the existing cover and the side panel I used the hand sander to take off as much of the paint and rough edges as possible.
Primer and spray paint turned it into something special.
New stuffing, batting and fabric.
After sitting in my new chair I realized a foot stool was needed. After searching through garage sales with no luck, I took a few floor boards, cut them to size, added unfinished legs that I also primed and spray painted.
Took an old pillow, cut it in half, covered the new stool with batting and fabric.
My new needle work station.
Now that I see the photo I'm thinking a new floor lamp is in order. I might even just spray paint the old one and cover the shade? That will be a future project.
Thank God for Spray Paint! I imagine a lot of DIY'ers are saying to whoever invented it,
Now I can sit and knit in comfort.
