Even duck tape couldn't rescue this sad little chair........

Oh whoa is me!  This is one sad little chair that sat in the back of the garage at an estate sale.  It was covered with boxes and other things, but I could see the little tiny floral fabric peeking out and calling my name.  When I uncovered the stuff on top it revealed itself as one sweet little boudoir chair that at one time had been dearly loved.
I thought about passing it up, especially when I saw the duck tape.  But hey, it really does have potential.  I imagined the lady that used to sit in this sweet little chair, perhaps in front of a vanity table or maybe while mending something for her family, she would have wanted me to have it.  So, in my little tiguan it goes!

And, the best part of all, it was only $5.00!

Next, it's off to the upholster for some love.

As soon as it's ready, I'll show everyone.

It is such a perfectly sweet little chair. It is crying out for some love and a good home. I can't wait to see it after you preform some of your make-over magic on it!
