Cost? $0.00 Value of Sitting Sometimes? Priceless! (photo)

des_arc_ya_yaNovember 3, 2007

Running through some photos this afternoon and realized that I could "show off" my curbside shopped chair. Already had the red paint. Recovered the seat in a piece of an old vinyl tablecloth. I've used it long enough in my kitchen for an extra chair that the cat has started "working" on the seat. Sure glad it wasn't $100 a yard upholstery fabric! LOL

I love that whole little setting there! Love the cabinet, love the dishes, and love the chair! I never used to care very much for red, but it is now my favorite color! Great job!

That looks great! I'm still working up the nerve to pick things up from the curb. I missed my chance a couple of weeks ago at the house just across the street from me. A great chair, headboard,etc. I t was late when I got home & was gonna get it in the morning, well......morning was too late. Seeing this will make me get it when I see it. Great job & for free too!

Gosh, is that ever cute! And very smart with that checkerboard tablecloth look!

I love curbshopping chairs. It seems they're fairly easy to find, and there are so many great ways to fix them up-- as you've proven here!

Thanks, guys. I appreciate the compliments. Sometimes it's nice to see old familiar things through someone else's "new" eyes!

Just looked at (somebody's???) all white chair and flowerpot with a green plant in it and thought it was gorgeous! Better get out and find me another chair! LOL
