Yesterday I started telling you about the projects I made for the ‘Care for Cathy’ Benefit.
This is another of the chairs I pulled out of the basement to makeover.
Close up of the broken out caned seat. (and the dust)
The back detail was one of my favorites.
After a couple of coats of paint. For this one I spray painted red along the edges first. I wanted to distress it so the red would show through, rather than the dark wood.
I took my jigsaw and trimmed around the inside of the caned seat to create a wider rounded opening.
A curb found Dutch oven would now fit perfectly in the opening.
See how the handles keep it from falling through?
A perfect fit!
Some thrift store accessories…….
A watering can…..
A one dollar birdhouse…….
Some paint touch ups…….
And a pot of cheerful yellow and purple pansies…..
Give new life to the beat up old chair.
All for a grand total of $11.00!
I love how the red shows through the white paint.
This one went for $45 in the auction. I actually liked this one better than the Herb Garden chair.
Which one do you like?
Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers for Cathy. They will all be passed on to her.
Gotta go now, it’s trash day somewhere!
