I know I promised myself not to buy anything bigger than a breadbox....
...but when I saw this chair...
and it was free...
...I simply couldn't resist taking on a DIY project.
A little carpenter's glue for the loose joints and some white paint...
...perhaps a bit of glazing and a good cleaning for the perfectly faded blue velvet cushion.
What do you think?
And how about this?
Don't you just love a little touch of industrial mixed in?
Check out those feet!
It is mobile but the casters can be locked in place with a lever under the table.
A good cleaning is all this needs!
Function over form....form over function...
...this freebie satisfies both ways of thinking.
Now I just have to get these two thrifty finds cleaned up before Mr. Flea gets back up here to the lake!
Luckily I have my Dad to help me with the gluing and clamping!
(My partner in crime...er I mean grime!)
Hope you are having a nifty thrifty weekend!
