Thrifty Life Thursday # 28 and a New French Chair

Pretty shape, pretty legs and a nice price.

So she came home with me. 

Even the Fleur de Lis fabric is pretty, and I think it might be silk. But it has problems...

It is nothing a coat of off-white paint and some drop cloth can't fix. She'll work well with something new I want to try in the living room...

I have waited so long to do a "summer" look in the living room, I think I want to go ahead and begin implementing the look that will carry me through until Christmas decor begins; 

Hmmm...maybe I'll post some elements I've been collecting and some inspiration soon.

But for now, take a look at the projects other bloggers have been working on!

Features from last week's party:

Julie from Renaissance Mermaid shared a wonderful new coffee table she and her husband collaborated on. 
I love how she kept the hardware on the door...

Joy from A Vintage Green shared some lovely vintage vignettes and some photo & editing tips. 

Cecilia from My Thrift Store Addiction shared a beautiful beachy table scape...using vintage gray Fire King plates she found at a thrift store and other lovely things.

      Word for the Day:
      Hebrews 10:24-25
       And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 
      25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, 
      but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

      I hope you save the fabric on the chair and frame it! Love the curvy shape of it and the price was a steal. Looks like quilt night here. Thanks for hosting.

      Revi, I love that chair's frame, and I'm a total sucker for dishes too (so much so that I'm sharing some I scored for a great deal at auction). Fun to join, thank you for hosting.

      Thank you Revi for Thrifty Life Thursday No. 28. Lovely treat to see my vintage vignette featured this week.

      I know it will be beautiful once it has the "Revi" touch.
      Thanks always for a fun party. You picked some great features. Joy and Cecilia always find such interesting stuff and know how to use it.
      Love the coffee table too.
