GOLDILOCKS AND THE CHAIR


SPOTTED THIS CUTE LITTLE CHAIR
TUCKED AWAY IN THE THRIFT STORE, 
I BELIEVE
I PAID 1.99 FOR IT!

THE BEFORE...


IT WAS PRETTY BEAT UP 
AND I DID'NT LIKE THE ORANGE
CAST IT GAVE OFF BUT I KNEW
WITH A LITTLE TLC IT WOULD
BE A CHAIR EVEN GOLDILOCKS
WOULD LOVE!

MY AFTER...
I STAINED THE SEAT A LITTLE
DARKER AND GAVE THE REST OF IT
A LITTLE BIT OF A WEATHERED LOOK...







IT'S THE CUTEST LITTLE THING
AND IT COULD BE USED AS A SMALL
ACCENT PIECE NEXT TO YOUR BED
WITH A FEW BOOKS ON IT!


THIS PIECE WAS DONE WITH
MY CALCIUM CARBONATE RECIPE I'LL
BE POSTING A REVIEW WITH IT
NEXT PROJECT
