It had me at a glance...
You know sometimes a purchase is well planned, thought out, saved for..
and then occasionally it hits you like a ton of bricks, and you think- Oh my , that's going home with me !
Well this was one of the unplanned, spur of the moment, follow your heart purchases. I was perusing one of the little antique shops in a nearby town, on the way back to the office and had not been in the store for oh- probably more than two minutes when I spied this.. or as my Grandson says- I spied with my little eyes :)
I know - it needs to feel the love.
It needs some tender care. BUT, what details !! I was immediately drawn to the colors in the chair- I just knew it would feel at home in my living area off the kitchen.
It will require some planning on my part to get the things I need- 1. leather cleaner/ repair... 2. A very fine sandpaper... 3. A piece of wood so My Darling can make a new seat where the other one simply gave out...4. A wonderful old Vintage fabric to save and repurpose.
Then it will be good as new- OR BETTER. Don't you think ?
Maybe a decorative initial here ?
The colors match my decor perfect !
Check out those Nail head- should be fun...
Stick around- I’m planning, preparing and otherwise going to finish this soon- we are hosting Thanksgiving here this year. That should keep me focused. Well.. hopefully.
If you have any great suggestions for this project- let us hear from
you. I am open to ideas - I want it to feel the love & be enjoyed by all.
Till next time- Enjoy the lovely FALL. We are.
