This chair has been in the family for years and years!
This past spring, H & I decluttered some of my storage area's and sent several chairs to the auction. This chair was way in the back and had stuff stacked on it where I couldn't see it or it would have probably made the trip too....lol!
After looking at in all summer long in the garage, I decided the other day that I would repurpose it as a outdoor chair to use in the yard. H stripped it down and gave it a fresh coat of white paint
Did I mention that it also had a little foot stool to match?
I didn't like the open plain back that was left after stripping it down, so I added a mirror frame and a cute bicycle to it.
I filled my bicycle basket with some little boo pumpkins......
I sat the stool in the chair seat and placed my white boots and a wash tub full of white chrysanthemums in front of the chair to complete my vignette.
I am so glad this chair didn't get sent to the auction.....I love it!
Here's the mirror that I put on the back of the chair.
This chair has been in the family for a long time, I'm not sure just how long but more than 20 years for sure!
I still am using the sofa and love seat it matched. The springs and fabric are still in perfect condition so I just have them slip covered to go with my current style
I had to play with my chair for a while before I decided which vignette I like the best....
Although I loved the owls, I can't leave them outside so I will save this vignette to put out sometime when I'm having a get together and then put them back inside after it's over.
Simple but this is a vignette I can leave out in the weather......
My daughter hasn't seen what I've done with "our" chair yet.....bet she asks for it back now....lol!
