Transformation Thursday

Thanks again to House of Wepworths for the opportunity to show what we homemakers have been busy doing. I have been amazed at the creativity and ingenuity of the women whose blogs I visit via HoH. And, she featured my dresser from last week! How awesome is that?

Last month, when my mom was visiting here from Florida, we hit some garage sales. My mom is like a good luck charm because we found awesome stuff! We bought something at every yard that we visited. This chair caught my eye because of its legs.

If I were a man I would be all about the legs. She also has a great back. Even though it was purple, I could not pass it up, especially when I inquired about the price. The owner told me it was $3.00. I ran and grabbed it faster than as you can say, Boo.

I repainted the chair white and then recovered it in a lovely Waverly paisley. I loved the paisley so much that I made some drapes out of it, too. A pair of thrift store sheers that I scored for $5.00, completes the window.

We are fortunate enough to have an office/guest room in our home. I wanted this room to have a real feminine feel and I think that I am on my way to achieving that. I still have a computer desk that needs to be painted white, and when my mom visits she is going to help me with putting up some wainscot wallpaper. Hi, mom!

Thanks for all of the sympathy and well wishes concerning my scourge. I am on my second round of steroids and feeling better. I have been swimming in the pool everyday and that has helped tremendously. If you ever get poison ivy please let me know so that I can send you all of the sympathy in the world. And also chocolate.

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you have done this week!

I love the little chair. Your guest room is looking great and ready for company.
I have too many children and not enough bedrooms to have an official guest room. HA unless you consider the shed.
Glad to hear you are starting to feel better!

Fabulous redo of the chair, Laney. I love it. I can hardly wait to wake up in that room. So, we are wall papering? I thought we were making new slipcovers for the LR sofa. Or, are we doing both? I am now remembering the week I spent at Laurie's a while ago when I mentioned that there wouldn't be enough time to do all the projects she had on her list. Her answer to me, "Sleep less". Hmmmm.

LOL, Mom. Yes, I plan on keeping you very busy, my little slave worker.
