A neighbor was throwing out this little chair. Um, over eleven years ago. It's a lot work hiding a chair that long! The footstool has been in hiding too. After a bit of searching, I found it at my husband's tool shop.
The only 'before" picture, I was documenting my excitement in finding a chandelier crystal tucked into the chair cushion. Wait..that's a crystal off of my chandelier, that's packed away in the basement. How do those things happen? Did I get the chandelier from the neighbor as well? I don't remember, such are the problems of being a pack rat.
I added some 'chippy' to the legs and arms.
And a magnolia bloom to keep my toes company.
I'm not sure what room it eventually reside in. At least its days of 'hiding' are over!
rediscover something you already own :0)
