Madalin Chair/Harp Back

I finally finished the
Madalin Chair
(that is the name I gave her)
It is a beautiful Harp Back Chair
I found it at DI several months ago. . .
 I thought for sure I had a picture of the before look
But, I guess I didn't take a picture of the poor little thing.
She was actually in real good shape. . . . just ugly!
 It is always amazing how a little paint and pretty upholstery
Can make such a dramatic change. . .
 After painting it white. . . it did  need a little character so. .
I shabbied it. . .(distressing)
 I am going to sell her. . . I don't know how I will be able to
Part with her. . . .When I re-create something
 I become attached.
But, my house is filling up with my attachments. .
So. . .I will sell Madalin to someone who will love her.
 I think she is probably from the 1940's
A knock-off of the Duncan Phyfe Style.
She is so pretty. . .I really enjoyed
Re-Creating her. . .
And she looks very well in my home!

I am going to linky this little creation with
Some of the great blog parties. .
Hope you will visit them
