Quite a Pair - Of Chairs!


Have you ever wondered WHO actually picks up the crap people leave on the side of the road with a "FREE" sign?
Yeah, well, I am one of those people. 
And in our neighborhood, people do it all the time. And sometimes its pretty nice stuff.



On the very day I saw this tutorial on Elsie's blog, I found a chair on the side of the road.
It was equally as sad as the one pictured, but I didn't draw a smiley face on mine.



I patched the hole with duct tape and dissassembled the chair, which was pretty easy since the directions are printed on the underside of the seat.  Unfortuately, the top of the chair wouldn't come off, the screws were rusty and bent, so I just covered it with a plastic bag.








Then I painted it with Krylon in a nice aqua blue. My plan was to make it opposite of this chair, so both Goose and I can have a seat in my craft room.





I found this rusty red cotton fabric at JoAnn's. It's the same kind of fabric I used for the first chair, only a different color. The reds aren't quite the same shade, but I like the way they look together. I used my glue gun to attach the fabric to the chair. I carefully folded the fabric and glued it in place.

The pillows are from Dollar Tree.  With some left over fabric, I sewed a few rosette flowers and attached them with my glue gun.  I don't know where they will end up, but I thought they looked cute in the pictures.
Thanks for looking!
