A dear friend, Sharon, decided to throw out a dark green chair that had seen better days.
I asked her if I could take it from the trash and she readily agreed.
Its intricate designs appealed to me greatly.
It looks like wrought iron but is made out of sturdy plastic that, in places, had broken apart.
During "chair restoration" weekend, the chair got three heavy coats of white spray paint from the dollar store.
Hubs repaired the broken pieces with wire and glue, both of which were easy to paint over.
The chair now graces the front porch.
I added a small rose wreath to help cover up part of the missing trim but am on the lookout for a bigger one.
It's the prettiest little chair ever and I love the way it looks now.
This was one chair restoration project that brought to reality the saying "One man's trash is another man's treasure." Ha!
Joining the very final Thrifty Things Friday on Diann's blog, The Thrifty Groove, co-hosted by Linda from A La Carte.
Diann and Linda will continue blogging but are letting go of the Thrifty Things Friday party.
Thanks so much for all the hosting work you both have done and for all the fun posts, girls!
Now, onward and upward!
