{someone's trash....}

Today like any other day I was just cruising down the road driving my little tid bits to school WHEN right in front of me I saw this chair!! I'm such a sucker for chairs ESPECIALLY when they are FREE!  I pulled over.. well maybe not all the way over, jumped out  and threw it in the suburban! 

I love the toile print on it but, it's kinda worn around the front of the chair & missing some of the cording....maybe I can take it off and wash it & use a linen cording? I'm definitely going to paint it...
but, first I am finishing up the dining table...I kinda slacked since we went on our mini vacay last week.

ok SO now my other find not free but, very inexpensive!  a little patio set from probably the 60's?  it needs to be re-sprayed but, it's ok for favorite are the chairs look at the little quarter foil cut-outs...super cute!

 and now a cute pic of my little sugar bear that I thought was adorable!! she is growing up right before my eyes and i'm having a hard time embracing it! ugghhh :(

and another of her enjoying her nachos at the pool....i mean REALLY enjoying them! 

ok, my hubby just got home with my paintbrush gotta run!

Love love love the toile chair! Ok, did I mention that I love the toile chair! And, of course, I love the 60's vintage outdoor set!

That chair is awesome. I need a desk chair like that. Last year I picked up a perfectly good round, taupe ottoman at the curb. Feels strange (hoping your neighbors don't notice).

OH honey love the chair. I would have jumped out also and threw it in the van
I can't tell how worn the toile is but Liquid Stitch can do wonders on material, its for no sew projects
I love the old look of the toile material
