Come on in, have a seat, it's Pink Saturday!!!!

Once upon a time this sweet little chair was just plain awful looking.  In fact, it probably would have ended up at the local dump had I not rescued it!  It was a creepy brown color with a fake leather seat cover. 
Five thousand staples later and three cans of creme colored paint......this little chair gained new life.  I had some pink silk fabric that I've been dying to use and it just seemed fittin for this chair and for Pink Saturday.


I also shabbied up the paint job a little to give it some character.  I think it came out pretty nice and tomorrow it goes to the shop for someone else, I hope, to love happily ever after!

Be sure and visit Beverly at "How Sweet The Sound."  We have her to thank for Pink Saturday fun.  Just click on her button to the right.

Thanks for stopping by.

Yes, I had a resection also, but no cancer TG thus far. How old is your son? I am on Asacol that has had me on control pretty well for quite some time. I had surgery last year to remove some very debilitating scar tissue that had accumulated & the gastro misdiagnosed as an active Crohns flare ... the Dr. got fired, the surgeon got a hug of gratitude & things are better. I so hope that your son will be better. I shall continue to remember him.

DEAR SWEET SISSIE,
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR VISITING MY BLOG. IT IS STILL IN A LITTLE MESS AS I MOURN THE LOSS OF MY DAUGHTER. I HAVE HAD TO GO TO THE DR. TO GET 2 NEW MEDICATIONS TO HELP ME AS WHEN I WAKE UP I THINK I HAVE TO GET TO THE LIVING ROOM TO TAKE CARE OF HER.
I WILL BE PRAYING FOR YOUR SON. I HAVE A COUSIN WHO HAS CHRON'S DISEASE AND BELIEVE ME SHE GOES NO WHERE WITHOUT HER OWN FOOD AND SOMETIMES IT FLARES UP WITHOUT REASON AND BOY IS SHE SICK.
THE CHAIR IS GORGEOUS....I'LL TAKE 6 JUST LIKE IT...LOL YOU DID A BEAUTIFUL JOB.
LOOK FORWARD TO OUR FRIENDSHIP GROWING.
I JOINED YOUR BEAUTIFUL BLOG AND WOULD LOOK FORWARD TO YOU JOINING MY BLOG

Thanks Sissie for visiting my blog and your kind comments. I am looking forward to looking around your blog. :) Funny enough today at work (i work at Michaels) a woman walked in with a WV sweatshirt on. We talked and come to find out she was from the same town. :)

Pink is my favorite color - no other compares, so Pink Saturday is the day when I can sit back, look at sweet pink goodies and visit some of the most lovely blogs in cyberspace.

I especially ♥ those kitties of yours, too cute!

Thank you for sharing your pinks with me today. They warmed my little pink ♥. Wishing you a wonderful and blessed weekend filled with the love of friends and family.

G'morn Sissie ~ It is hard not to have an attitude with this disease, as with most diseases ... but once you shake yourself off & get on track attitude plays a big role in success vs defeat. Maybe you all would like to discuss the Asacol with the Dr. next time. At least I have a decent life with this med vs the horrible first years of Prednisone which did absolutely NOTHING for me at all.

Bless him, I hope things will come along better for him. Do stay in touch, my friend.
Hugs & have a great weekend. TTFN ~Marydon

Hi Sissie,
What a wonderful transformation. Love the pink fabric you use on the seat. It is just the best feeling when you can see the beauty in something that everyone else thinks is dumpster worthy. Love it. Have a wonderful weekend.

Blessings,

Your chair turned out so pretty. I put pink pleather on my dining room chairs this summer and I love the look. So glad I found your blog, it was my first time visiting. Please come and visit sometime, I would love to have you!!

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

I do love it! I also love your living room. I noticed you don't have a rug which is a dilemma I've be considering. It's not good with dogs, but I feel like I need it. NOT so...yours looks wonderful without one.

Happy Pink Saturday!
