Little White Chair

Do you have a little piece of furniture that needs a makeover?  I had this little chair and I knew what potential it had but, I just hadn't gotten around to painting it.  Hubs and I have taken a "staycation" this year and we are doing a few projects around the house.  So, finally this little chair got it's makeover.

And, I knew my little white chair was going to be photogenic.

The chair is painted with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.
My peppermint tea is in a Ralph Lauren cup and I do drink it while editing these photos.

That is so sweet! I have an old chair just like that - before the makeover. Now I'm getting a little inspiration. :-)

Hi Sherry,
Love your little white chair and it is indeed very photogenic! The cup and roses look lovely on it. It's simple but very pretty. Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea.
Thank you too for congratulating me on my feature in RH magazine. It's lovely to be featured like that and it was so unexpected too. Have a wonderful week.


Debbie said...

I have several pieces that need a makeover too. I hope they come out half as lovely. I really love the finished look.

Sherry: I love, love that little chair, because I have one just like it. It will be in my post for the kitchen reveal (if that ever happens!!!) I t will. The chair was painted red at one time, but it mostly has worn off. I'm going to leave it like that for awhile at least. But I love yours in white. It's got me thinking..Happy Tuesday..Judy
