Kim has been doing a lot of thrift store shopping here lately. She asked us if any of us like to go thrifting, so I thought I would share my latest thrift store find.
Any time someone talks about thrifting, I get the "itch" to go. I have been trying to stay away from the thrift shops because I really don't need anything. However, when my daughter said that she would like to have a wicker chair on her front porch I thought that was a great excuse to go to my favorite thrift store!
Look what I found! I was there 5 minutes when I spotted this beauty for $8! I took it to her house, sat it on the porch, and it was the perfect size. Laura and I decided that since her house is gray and her front door and shutters are red, the chair needed to be black. At first I left it at her house for her to paint it, but I went back an hour later and got loaded it in my car, again. She agreed that she didn't have time to paint it. As you can see, Steve had to use the glue gun to do some quick repair work before he started painting it.
Since the chair is going to be black I thought some red geraniums in black pots would be cute, too. I went out to my collection of pots and I found two of these white flower pots that I haven't used in a long time. I don't know why I shot this picture sideways!
Ta Da! Isn't it beautiful? I found this lime green outdoor fabric on sale at JoAnn fabrics so I made her a cushion. The chair looks really cute in front of my picket fence. I'm sure it will look adorable on Laura's front porch, too.
Now all I have to do is make her a wreath for her front door, and she'll have the cutest front porch on the block!
