Happy Sunday Friends
I found this vintage chair at a flea market in Amish Country (Walnut Creek) last week while spending the day with my friend Gretchen. I (and another lady) spotted it at the same time and I decided to keep looking around and if it was still then when we came back then I'd buy it. WELL ... obviously it WAS there and now it's mine and will soon have a new home in my guest bedroom. After applying the 1st coat of paint I realized I forgot to take a BEFORE photo ... hence the Black/White picture ... Grrrrrr!
This is the color I will be starting with and see what happens from there.
Hubby has suggested painting the spindles various 'vintage' colors but I think I'll wait until I find the seat cushion I want and draw inspiration from it for additional decorating. Our guest bedroom is done in lavendar & mint green so I want to keep those colors in mind.
This chair has some beautiful detail ... not sure if I should do 'something' with that or just leave it the solid color. At time of purchase, it was painted white with a 'blue' chandelier painted in the center of the opening in the scroll work. Yuck! So I did my best to SAND off the chandelier since I didn't think it really fit the chair style.
Leave me a comment.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
Have a FABULOUS day!
