a makeover waiting to happen

Sometimes I find something that catches my eye...

(picture from Craigslist)

Then I scour the internets for something similar, waiting, hoping. Will it be in my price range (which my husband prefers to be zero dollars)?

For 2 months I have looked for a chair like this.

Yesterday, I walked into GW and guess what was waiting for me?

For 9.99.

I think I may have heard an angel choir singing. Or something.

I have seen quite a few of these chairs being redone- with paint and new upholstery fabric I think it could be stunning!

It is just begging for a makeover, don't you think?

P.S. It is Friday, I just got home from work, and I am making myself some coffee. In short? Life is good.


  1. LOVE IT! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

    And THANK GOODNESS it's Friday!

  3. This has nothing to do with your post, but yes, I can get you one of the calendars when they come out. They typically arrive in November sometime. I'll do my best to remember to pick one up for you and mail it to you. Help me remember?

    (I had a typo in the last comment that I couldn't live with...)

  4. I have no doubt that you will make the chair beautiful! You have such a knack for finding fantastic deals!

  5. @ Cindy- Yes! I'm glad you agree! And thank you!

    @ Ashley- Oh, I am so excited! Please let me know how much I owe you too! I have been wanting a nice calendar for a while and I am always sorely disappointed in the ones that are at the store!
