I had been keeping an eye on this little chair at a neighborhood antique place I always find excellent finds in. At first I thought the chair was 40, I didn't have my glasses on. Then I saw it was 75. I waited about a month then put in an offer for 60 dollars. (Hey why not right, ) They accepted my offer and I brought it home yesterday. I'm going to replace the seat with a green velvet fabric. I only need a tiny bit so it won't be expensive. For Christmas I'm going to hang a sweet little wreath from the ribbon I put on it. Take a look!
Then on my birthday weekend my loving husband took me antiquing and I found this beautiful painting. Okay, so when I was in Cape May I went to an antique store earlier in the summer and had seen the same painting. 450.00 Yikes. I had fallen in love with it but thought that is way too much money. Well last weekend I found the same one in better condition and better frame. Guess? $80.00 Yep. Just call me the queen of whatever that word is when you bring prices down. "Haggling" (spell check please)
Take a look!
And here is the finished product with alot of help from my husband, we had to use the staple gun to do the chair.
|You can't see the color well though, the velvet is a mossy beautiful green.|
