Yellow Chair

This is my Yellow Patio Chair
It is bright and pretty sitting on my
small little patio My Yellow Chair
did Not always look so
cheery and cute!
Sad to say it was
ROAD KILL!
One Sunday coming home from Church
I saw on the curb this ugly blue chair
my neighbor had set their garbage out
and next to the garbage can was the chair. . . .
This is the before picture!
I did the right thing and ask my neighbor if I could have the chair.
They couldn't image me wanting the ugly chair and gladly gave it to me.
I had it for a long time before I painted it.
I always wanted to have the reed (I think that is what it is called) seat on it
But, I don't know how to weave the seat and it would cost more than I want to pay
for me to have someone weave the seat. . . . . So
I tore the seat completely out
I don't like "pots in the hole"
So, I painted an old cupboard door
just so I could have plants on it.

I sanded and primed then
I SPRAY PAINTED!
yeah, for spray paint
It no longer is an ugly "road kill" chair
it is bright cheery and
makes me Happy!

  6. How lucky to have the gift of a "creative eye" with the vision to see that chair, with lovely bones, and give it a new life with the charming yellow paint (makes me happy just looking at it) and practical shelf.

    Glad to meet you and follow from New Friend Fridays! Have a wonderful weekend, Jenn

    Busy cleaning today, not as much fun as painting.
