Pink chair!!!!

The baby shower is approaching fast ( Feb.26) and I have been on the hunt to find some vintage chairs!!!!!! I have been to the thrift store numerous times and found nothing. Finally we went Tuesday (almost the whole family) my hubby,daughter and the two boys tagged along. I was feeling discouraged but at the last store I found one lonely chair. It is sturdy and paintable.My kind of chair!!!!!! So for $3.00 (great price) I bought it and brought it home. I decided to use my favorite pink paint that I already had.So yesterday I painted it by hand. At some point I would love to get my own paint sprayer that I don't have to attach to hubby's air compresser,it would make life easier!!!! I debated stenciling a fleur de lis but could not find my stencil.I will look for it today and if I find it I may add it to the seat. Here are the photos.....

I love how the chair turned out!!!! I saw a pink chevron pillow at Target that would look so cute on it!!!!! I also NEED to find more vintage chairs!!!

Gorgeous color! It's amazing what you can do with a cushion, a 3 dollar chair, and a bucket of paint! If only more people refurbished things, there could be so many more interesting pieces with a little creativity and raw material ;)
