If you have visited my blog often, you know I love to make trash into treasures, and one of my favorite spots to look for stuff to re-do is on the family farm. On a recent trip I discovered 2 little chairs sitting under a tree. After asking my mother in law about them, I found out they were hers when she was a little girl. I immediately asked for them, and as she typically does, she gave them to me with a shake of her head (like I was crazy for wanting them!) Walker and his little buddy Wyatt were with me, and even Wyatt said, "Ms. Mandi, what are you gonna do with those junky chairs?"
Oh ye of little faith! I took those little chairs and gave them a new lease on life! I simply peeled off the paper seats and sanded a little, primed, and spray painted them. I used Rustoleum Red spray paint and modge podged some paper for a new seat. I have been looking for Connor a small side table for his bed, and the chair worked perfect.
I used some little hooks I found at the hardware store to hang it, and the other one sits beneath it when Connor isn't using it. So what do you think? Have you turned any trash into a treasure lately?
I am a mom to 2 rough and rowdy little boys and the wife to a wonderful man. I love the Lord, my family, coffee, Hobby Lobby,chocolate,my friends, sweet tea, decorating, shopping, photography, finding a bargain, working in my yard and anything that allows me to be creative. I am a perfectionist at heart, but am learning that sometimes perfection is overrated. I adore anything and everything done by Pottery Barn, Country Living or BHG, and that about sums it up!
