Have you ever heard the saying "You can't put lipstick on a pig"? I remember the first time I heard it I almost fell over with laughter. Well let me tell you, this chair was a real oinker.
Courtice Flea Market two weekends ago. As soon as I spotted it, I felt that excitment we have all felt rummaging through row upon row of vendors wares. After seeing that Mr. Vendor only wanted 10 dollars for it, my husband was already carrying it to the Jeep.
I couldn't wait to get out the white paint. Once I came home and took the necessary (for blogging) before pictures I started to dismantle the seat. The material was wretched and smelled like...well you get the idea.
The fabric I used, although I think it's adorable and was an IKEA steal at $3.99 a yard is only temporary until I find an equally good deal on a perfectly delish French grain sack...(good luck with that I know...pricey).
If anyone knows who sells them for a reasonable price, please let me know.
