Chair Update...


Remember this chair? I blogged about it here. I drove out on Saturday to see if it was still there after 6 months. I know, what are the chances, right? Either the chair is really ugly and no one wants it, or I am very lucky. I choose to believe I am very lucky because...

The chair was still there!! It is a little quirky I know, but I think it will be perfect in Cricket's room. Here it is in my backyard right before I sprayed it glossy white. Already a huge improvement...I promise. No one looks good covered in grime and dirt. The best part? I paid $25 for the chair and ottoman.

Now I need to find some fabric. I was considering this blue zebra, trimmed in yellow, that I got from Jenny at Little Green Notebook. Thanks for the tip from my Anonymous reader!!! She has great fabric for sale especially if you are on Twitter. Which I am not, so if she posts something fabulous in yellow or blue, let me know.
