summer thriftiness

I have a problem of bringing home chairs.  Often broken down chairs.  But I have a vision for each one.  And the shapes are fantastic!

This chair was painted gold!  It reminded me of New Orleans for some reason.  Especially when after I rubbed it with some steel wool there was a bright pink underneath.

My girl picked out this lavender color and since it was for her room I ok’d it.  But that was the only reason!  I’m not a big personal fan of purple, totally for personal reasons…

And here she is totally happy with the results!  This is what I am thrilled about : the chair was $2.50 and then 50% off – I bought the chair for $1.25 from my local thrift!!  My husband wasn’t so thrilled about me bringing home another chair, but when we got it all cleaned up and painted so quickly, he didn’t punish me. :)
