Show and Tell Friday~!

Revived "old" chair~!
Happy Show and tell Friday, Everyone~! I thought I would show you this old chair I picked up at a used furniture store. If only I would have taken the "before" picture. Oh well, live and learn. It was a dark ugly brown and all scratched up. I started with a fresh coat of primer and a couple of coats of bright white paint. It was looking much better already, now for the fabric... Well, I wasnt too sure about the choice I made. It is a black cut velvet on teastain linen. I was so afraid it would clash with the bright white! I think it turned out ok, or at least I love it. Now, If only I could find 5 more! (he he) I would redo everyone of them for my diningroom. But, for now, it sets alone in my bedroom and brings me lots of joy!
So, bye for now, gotta get crackin' and read everyones "Show and tell" posts...

Come join us for Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home!
