A Goodwill find

Happy Saturday everyone!! This morning I went to my local Goodwill store, and look what was waiting just for me to take home :) Yup, this wonderful Vintage chair ~ the price was $13, which I didn't think was too bad ~ In order to get it into my car (which is a Sunfire Convertible), I had to put the top down, and place the chair in the back seat, then put the top back up ~ good thing it's a nice day out today, lol :) As soon as I brought it into the house, and after taking the before shot, I removed the seat, removed the vinyl ( yes vinyl!!) seat cover; used it as my template to cut out the fabric for the new covering. I'm sure many of you can recognize this gorgeous Reproduction rose barkcloth fabric, which is exclusive to Urbangardens, and sadly, out of print :( It's called Falling Roses, and is my Favorite!! I have 3 yards of this fabric, and have been waiting for the RIGHT project to use some of it for, and this chair "fits the bill" ~ the next thing I will be doing to the chair is giving it a new paint color....I was thinking white, which would be the obvious choice, but I am REALLY leaning towards painting it a very soft pale pink. I think that with the fabric color background being a cottage white, and with the soft pale pink roses it has, a pale pink color for the chair would really make the fabric really stand out quite nicely. This endeaver will have to wait until later next week when I am out doing my weekly "shopping", which at that time I can purchase the paint. Don't worry my bloggie friends, I will keep you posted once I have it all painted up and ready for you all to see :)

Just a reminder that I am still having my "Spring Cleaning" sale going on in my Esty Shoppe ~ remember to type in SPRINGCLEAN30 for the coupon code at the checkout so that you can receive 30% off your purchase (s). Have a great weekend everyone!!

Thirteen bucks! What a deal. I once got a framed handmade lace cherub for $1.00. But these bargains are few and far between. Yes, paint it pink! Love, Linda

Oh, I love that fabric, it is gorgeous, why do all of the good ones get discontinued. I hate using my favorites, but this was a worthy use! Thanks for entering, wishing you luck!
