Welcome to this week's Blue Monday! Blue Monday is brought to us by our gracious hostess Smiling Sally.
About three weeks ago, I saw this chair and another just like it but with a black seat at the local Goodwill store. At that time I thought that I had no room for another chair, and how could I justify spending any money right now? They were still there the following week. I could feel myself weakening. I decided that if they were still there this weekend, they were coming home with me!
Only one was left however, the one with the blue needlepoint seat. And baby, let me tell you, the price was right! See this tag? Yes, $5! I am sure that this is an antique.
Here is a closer view of the needlepoint. It will definitely need some cleaning.
I was thinking about trying to clean the chair up and leave it unpainted, but the more I looked at the chair, it was crying out for some creamy white paint. When I tried to pull that awful pink tag off, the thick sticky tape the Goodwill employees had put it on with came off with some of the wood! That decided it for me. This will be an upcoming project.
Thought I would get some input from you all: I found these cool white boxes in the shed at the house on Bonnie Lane, left there by the previous owners. I don't think the man who made the shed his woodworking shop wants them as he passed away last week. That saddens me very much as I had met him and his wife and they were very sweet.
Anyhow, what would you do with these white boxes? I had thought of using them to hold photos, but I think I could do something better with them. Any suggestions?
Have a great Blue Monday and be sure to check out the other blue posts on other blogs.
