When I first moved into our first home I had a tiny resemblance of a porch. I loved it so and wanted to put white wicker furniture but the truth was I barely could fit a few chairs. This was the chair. I have had this chair for so many years. Back then wicker wasn't indoor/outdoor. It got a little damaged by the weather and therefore needed a few coats of paint over the years.
When we moved to our home now I took it with me and then when we bought our beach home I knew it would find a place there. (I don't remember but I probably painted it again)
Anyway, this weekend when I was at the beach, I looked at my little chair and decided it needed a new home, again.
So I brought it home with me. I didn't paint it again just hosed it down since it had been sitting on my little deck outside.
Since I am redecorating my room I thought it would find a home there, in my bedroom.
I quickly decided to make a few pillows for it. Believe it or not the fabric you see on the pillows is inside out. The other side is a bright yellow with blue flowers. I had this fabric forever and when I looked at the other side I fell in love. So I put the sewing machine on and did them both in a few minutes.
Then I found this lovely crocheted throw in Home Goods of all places. It is my favorite of all my throws and the colors match my room perfectly. I have a fixation with crocheted things like table cloths and bedspreads and throws. They are so comforting.
Here is a close up of my throw.
And now so is my old chair. Everything old is new again.
I love that it has been with me for 25 years.
