Free Thrift Store Chair turned FABULOUS!

I am a hopeless romantic for discarded treasures, such is the case for this abandoned chair...






































She was in terrible forgotten, hopeless condition! On the left you can see
the bad fabric and worn wood. I painted up the wood and recovered the fabric with 
old pillowcases . I fluffed up the sides with extra lace from an extra valance I had.





















I had no intention of keeping this fluffy chair until she found a
spot in the corner of my living room!





















Pretty little embroidered pillow with dainty pink and yellow flowers!
I just love fluffy ruffles! Can you tell?


I added this cute wall pocket with fluffy pink roses to the front of my little faux fireplace screen table...


































Thank you for stopping by!
 Have a delightful weekend!
Happy Pink Saturday!
I will be sharing this with the lovely Cindy for Show and Tell Friday!
Hugs,

  25. You were so creative with the old frame of a chair. Someone else’s junk can always become your treasure with just a little bit of thought and work. All of your pictures are beautiful...such a lovely home. So inviting.

  30. Olivia, what you did with the shabby chair is just beautiful. I don't know if I would have seen it's beauty. You took something that no one wanted and turned her into a treasure. The pillow is gorgeous. I love the lace and all the design. Well done!!!
