A Little Blue Chair


Yesterday, I went on a hunt to see how many items I could purchase with only $20.  I found this sturdy chair at our local flea market for a cheap price.  


Taking the paint that I already had on hand, I gave it a couple of coats, sanded it down, & added some dark wax to tone down the Peacock Blue color.


I really like how it turned out!  It, too, will be heading on over to The Strawberry Patch Barn Sale.  Go "like" them on Facebook to see all the great vendors.  You'll want to mark your calendars for the weekend of Sept 6th-8th!


And yes, those are overgrown flowers that have taken over the back of my house!  Somethings around here have to wait until after the barn sale!
