Fun Find

Good Morning!

I'm so excited to show off a great find from the thrift store.

Normally, I wait until I have a chance to fix some of the ugly - - but not today!

I'm too excited.

Take a look.

A chair?  Seriously!

Ohhhhh, Yeah!

I've been on the lookout for a desk chair to use in my kitchen for - like - ever!
With a price tag of $1.98, this metal chair is just the ticket.

I'll use it here,

After a coat of paint and some new vinyl, it will be perfect.

I'm a little nervous about the vinyl recovering.  Does anyone have any experience in this?
I may have to do a little research, but if all else fails a slipcover will work too I think.

Hope you all have a great day, I'll be figuring out how to fix this chair.



  1. Great price for the chair Robin! I'm sure it will look amazing once you get finished with it, can't wait!!!

  2. Great deal on the chair...I love that it's metal. Have you thought about covering it with comes in so many cool patterns.

  4. I re-did a chair not to long ago that had really old vinyl on it and I bought some creamy white spray paint from home depot, took the seat off sprayed it and put it back on and it turned out perfect!! The spray paint didnt crack or anything, it was very flexable. Hope this helps! Good luck!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
