Show & Tell Friday~

This Friday I'm showing off my new chair. This old-old green velvet chair with wood inserts was a mere $20 bucks. It is heavy and very well built. It is sitting in front of my $15 birdcage, which is in front of one of two matching pictures I got for $7 bucks each.... which is next to the $10 pine cabinet full of thrifted milkglass~ This chair was at one of my favorite boutiques (thrift stores) I get a half off coupon for everything in the store every Wednesday & Friday. It was priced at $40-- even at $40 I would have looked at it! They just had set it out on the floor when I was doing my final "loop-dee-loop" of the store.... SCORE! I am going to paint the wood white-- eventually~

Wow! $20.00 was a great dale on that chair and it looks to be in excellent condition. Normally when I find a chair for $20.00 it needs a slipcover. Thanks for sharing your find. Well done.

Ooohhh! I love rescuing little chairs from the thrift stores. I have several and am so delighted when I see others sharing my quirky passions. This is a beauty! Great birdcage and cover/seed-catcher too. Don'cha just love being crafty/artsy and thrifty?
