Garage Sale Goodie

Our neighborhood had it's semi-annual yard sale a few weeks ago, and even though I chose not to participate in the torture of actually selling things in the yard sale, of course I needed to drive around and look for fabulous pieces of furniture!

I passed about 10 signs directing me to one home that boasted lots of antiques, so I thought, this should be good.  And it was - I found this cool chair!!

The tag on the bottom says it was born in 1974 - is that an antique?  I 'm not sure - but it is really cool.  I have seen a lot of blogging about actually painting upholstered furniture, so I think I might attempt it.  I am planning on using it as a desk chair in the guest room.  I thought about painting it yellow,with maybe black piping?  Or recovering in a graphic black and white?  But recovering will get rid of that neat stitching detail on the back.  What do you think?


  1. anything 25 plus yrs old is considered antique unless thats been changed....1 can always be wrong.

  2. I just love that chair! Can't wait to see what you do with it. =]
