I am proud to join Susan @ BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH for Met Monday! You really must come see!
Saturday morning didn't yield any great finds. I found a good book, an historical novel, some nice potted succulents, nothing really great and wonderful.
But...after our very late breakfast, and on our way home...RED jumped out at me from the curb! "STOP! STOP!" I screamed and dear sweet husband threw on the brakes with a screech!
Since he always gets as excited about things as I do, he quickly turned around and back we went. And there..forlorn and dirty, an old piece of carpet (I think) nailed to the seat was my little chair! EXACTLY what I was looking for...and I didn't even have to paint it!
I had my camera, of course, but I never remember to take pictures..so I took this one after he unloaded it from the trunk.
Not too impressive, but I love it! Look at these sweet roses on the back! And did you see the legs in the upper photo?? Did you?
Under the carpet was an old piece of probably paneling, nailed to the seat. No problem...
Sweet husband got his trusty saw and drill out...and while my girlfriend and I ate toast, fresh fruit and coffee, Mr. Wonderful went to work! (I hand fed him fresh grapes to keep him in a good mood!)
He cut a nice round hole in the top of the seat..the old wood was fine..
...and he worked at it until my new clay pot of succulents fit right down inside...perfectly. See how he is checking for size? More than once I am afraid.
I then got out the RED spray paint and in a few minutes it was all dry and in went my little Succulent garden bowl. I only painted the board Sweet Husband had cut...not the chair.
And here it is on the front porch. It replace the old wagon that had fallen into pieces...
I think I really like it there. My little chair! *smiles from ear to ear!*
Love and hugs, you bet!
