This adorable chair is a recent purchase for less than $6...at a thrift store I visit occasionally. Most of my favorite thrifts do not have furniture.
I also found a couple of ironstone pieces there - seriously taped together so you can barely see what they are in this photo! Oh, well, it can be a surprise for later.
This place is more expensive for small items, but sometimes I can find furniture for a reasonable price.
I put the chair on my tiny stoop/porch, and I'm seriously debating with myself whether or not to paint it.
My house is neutral - the paint color is "cafe au lait" and the windows and front door are painted a medium-dark gray.
However, I do have a rusty green wagon out there...and I plan to fill it with mums and pumpkins again.
I was considering moving the wagon to another part of the yard, so I'm leaning toward painting...some shade of white or gray.
Maybe I can take some photos this weekend and get your opinion...
MEANWHILE...Take a look at the features from last week!
Sherry from Thrift My House shared a tasty banana treat, and no, it's not a food post.
She found this mismatched furniture at a thrift store, her husband did surgery on the chair, and her daughter painted much of it. It is for her daughter's new solo occupancy bedroom. (Start 'em young, I say!) Go over and see the before photos. This family has skills!
Tania from Farragoz Designer's Notebook shared a really clever revision of a table. NO, it is not the dark gray piece on which the chair is sitting. Any guesses? You'll just have to visit to find out about the other table. BTW, a chair in a vignette! How cool is that?! You can consider this two creative ideas in one post - a lovely two-fer.
Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction is taking turns with Audrey to see who can be creative enough to be featured every week.
Seriously, but when you see these chairs...how could I NOT feature them? (Ummm, forget you've seen them featured in the A-list blogs already, just enjoy your opportunity to see such lovely chairs in such a beautiful color one more time. Then, if you haven't yet, go to her blog and pin them.)
