A Chairytale

A Chairytale

Once upon a time, this little chair lived a sad, drab existence in the thrift store.  She would look longingly out the window and dream of a fairy godmother who could rescue her from her lonely life of servitude. Then one magical day, Amy came along and took her home for a mere $3.99, waved a magic wand (aka spray paint), dressed her up in a new gown, and now she’s the envy of all her wicked step-chair-sisters at the ball. Ok, so my Cinderella analogy kind of fell apart there.  Anyway, she sure is beautiful now, and so fancy in that Tiffany blue!

See the how-to on Amy’s blog While Wearing Heels.

    Gee. Beautiful. I’d like to know where all these fabulous pieces come from (that aren’t pick from the curb). Our thrift store sells furniture for $20+! Never have I found a decent piece to work with for under $5 or even $10!
    On another note, thank you for sharing all these great before and afters. This has led to some great blogs for me to follow (including yours of course!)

    I’ve seen people paint caning/wicker on chairs, but what if it s all broken. Any ideas on replacing it with something else?
