Blue Early American Chair

Well, hello Blogger Friends!
Where is the time going? Another Monday is here!
And August is on it's way out and going fast.
Ooooo I don't like it!
Don't get me wrong I love the Autumn season
But, oh my, Time, please slow down a bit.
Not ready to let Summer go.
Oh, well, I can't do anything about it. .
Just enjoy the days and the moments I am in.
Well, anyhoo, on to my cute
Blue Chair. .

I found this adorable Early American style chair
At DI for $8.00
I have always loved Early American style of furniture.
When I was first married in the mid 60's (1966)
Early American was my choice in furniture style.
It just always seemed so cozy and homey. .
So when I came across this piece at the thrift store
Of, course I had to have it.
It is solid maple. . . .
This is it now!
 It had a broken spindle. .
But my son-in-law made a new one for me.
I actually spray painted this chair. .
Chairs are so time consuming to paint.
So I used my favorite spray-paint. . .Rust-Oleum
Colonial Blue.
 I think my next painting project will be the table you see
It is Early American also. . .1966
I am really pleased with how The Blue Chair it turned out.
It looks cute in my living room. ..
The chair is sturdy, and comfortable.
My Living room is small,
So I can't have a large chair in there.
This fits just perfectly.

Well, I am off to run errands and then
Spend some time getting my crocheting project done
So I can show you. . .
A little side note. . Daughter's kitchen transformation is almost
Ready for the big reveal. . .I can hardly wait to show you.
