Chair up, Charlie!

Chair up, Charlie!
This chair was so forlorn it actually appears to be frowning.  See the droopy eyes and the sad mouth?  It’s making me feel all depressed.  I hate when I feel sorry for inanimate objects, it’s the same feeling I get when I see all the dried up Christmas trees that no one bought! Why do I feel so sad for you old trees?  You were already dead to begin with!  Aaaah, make the stupid sadness go away!
Ahem.  Anyway, so Phyllis had kept this chair kicking around for years until one day she could bear its pleading eyes no more.  A light coat of turquoise spray paint, some bright outdoor fabric, a grand total of about $10 spent, and now this chair has something to smile about!
I find so much inspiration in seeing these quick, little changes that make such a big difference.  See more from Phyllis on her website Phyllis Dobbs.

    LOL, I totally see the frowning face. The after looks beautiful!

    I think it would of been 100x better if she switched the frown upside down on the chair, haha! Lmao, excuse me but I’m being silly. 😉

    I…I…I just can’t see the eyes on this chair. Trying but just can’t. It’s much prettier, though!
