There is a special place I like to go here in town. A fun thrift store that I love to visit with a dear friend of mine. I don’t always find something but I always have a great time. A few weeks ago, my friend and I headed over to our thrift store and I quickly scanned the small warehouse not finding anything that caught my eye until suddenly I saw the back of a chair.
I held my breath while I walked around to the front hoping that it would look just as good from the front. And it was… perfect! A houndstooth wing back chair in pristine condition.
SOLD…err, I mean taken because to my surprise the chair was FREE! It was my lucky day! We loaded it up and I have been oohing and awing over it ever since.
If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve seen a sneak peek of this chair. I was so excited the day I got it I couldn’t wait to show it off.
The houndstooth pattern is so lovely.
And these legs…
It really was perfect as is but I thought it might be kind of fun to add a pop of color to the chair. I love the look of painted chair legs and I’ve been wanting to give it a try and thought this chair would be the perfect opportunity to give it a shot!
Since I am currently working on updating my master bedroom (one of my 2013 home goals, see the whole list here), I decided to paint the legs yellow.
This was probably one of the easiest paint projects I’ve ever tackled. And it really changed the whole look of the chair.
I love the pop of yellow against the black and white houndstooth.
I already find myself cuddled up on it quite frequently. It’s a perfect addition to our home.
…and can you believe it was free?
And how about these yellow legs. Do you like?
Thanks for stopping by today, sweet readers. Have a great week 🙂
