buy a house, get a chair for free...

when we bought our house, this lonely chair was left behind.  personally, i would have never bought this chair because it's just not my taste.  i probably would not even buy it at a garage sale, but now it's ours and i decided to make the best of it.  and what better way to spruce up a piece of furniture than to paint it.

when in doubt, paint it white, right?
now it is used for our little "office area" in our kitchen.
not bad, now i really like it! 

and here's a sneak peak of the teepee i'm working on.
it's almost finished, i just have to add trim, so i don't want to spoil the finale!
i'll try to have it finished mid-week.
have a great monday!


  1. Look fab....I really like it!! Cant wait to see how your teepee turns out...Im thinking of making one for my little man :)

  2. cute! I sell/show a lot of adult communites, and unfortunately most are estate sales...the family usually leaves behind A LOT of person items and furniture..some great finds, but creepy!!
