Is this seat taken … to the dump?

Is this seat taken … to the dump?

I can’t for the life of me figure out why JC from My Rustic Cottage Life would want to redo such a perfectly nice chair.  I mean, aside from all the stains, rips, cobwebs, mold, probable vermin infestation, and the fact that I can almost smell it through my computer screen, it really was a nice chair! 

No. No it wasn’t.  All it really had going for it was a sturdy frame. Luckily that was all JC needed to work her magic.  High-fives to you JC, for following through with this beastly thing!  You are a super-champ!

    Talk about a complete make-over. That’s amazing, wouldn’t have thought that beat up chair had it in it to look so wonderful!

    What? How? I mean…sheesh!

    I know somebody else mentioned the crate and I love that as well. I love the fan, the scuffed floors, and the detective light, too.

    How I wish I could see how she even went about this…..

    Fan-bloody-tastic!! She must have had a lot of patience – and vision for that matter 🙂
