First Ever Post

Well this is my first ever post. I have been checking out blogs for about two weeks now and have seen so many wonderful homes, gardens, and plenty of wonderful creations. There are so many talented people out there. Wanted to share a project I finished a couple of days ago. I started out with an old chair I had laying around and almost tossed in the trash. But....I just can't seem to throw out much. LOL !!! Please excuse the pictures. I haven't figured out how to flip them yet (I'm not too good with the computer.)

I took off the chair's seat and painted the rest of the chair a soldier blue color. When it dried, I sanded it down and rubbed on a colonial walnut stain and finish. For the seat, I cut a piece of this wonderful cutter quilt that I bought at a recent flea market for only $1. It is in pretty rough shape, but is so beautiful and I figured I could get some good use out of it.

Here is the finished product. I think it turned out perfect. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
