I couldn't resist the medallion on the back.
Or the legs <3
Well, that, and the $3 price tag.
(for reals this time - this is not a price I made up!)
I really wanted to paint it heirloom white.
REALLY wanted to. But my first instinct is to paint everything heirloom white, and I'm trying to fight it. Some of the time, anyway.
So for the chair I went with turquoise.
I brushed it on inside the house - the same day I did the buffet, actually. I just went back and forth between them and concentrated on not mixing the brushes up.
After it was dry I took it back out in the garage to distress it. Paint fumes are fine, but I don't need turquoise dust all over my house!
I covered the seat in canvas - left over from my drapes.
It wasn't my original plan for fabric, but I LOVE the way it turned out.
Then I whipped up this little pillow to sit in the chair. How cutes is that?!
And the medallion is FAB is distressed turquoise, isn't it?
Here she is, complete!
I'll be linking up to Transformation Thursday at The Shabby Chic Cottage.
