Thrifty Yellow Chair

As a J-GRITS (junkin' girl raised in the south!) I am always on the look out for a deal, a bargain, a cheapy-freebie!!  My friend found such a fantastic deal recently!! Oh yeah, can you say FREE x 2!!






As the story goes someone did not want the hassle of restoring these two delightful girlies! They were pretty rickety...wobbly!  

Can you imagine?  It's like a sign was posted on these two...NOT WANTED!!

However in the minds of all good junkers...
This sad sap  :( , an unwanted little one, can change from this...



to an amazing that...


All it really takes is a little work!!  Yeah right!  Have you ever finished a project where it only required a little work??

After a really good scrubbing, sanding of the peeling layers,  (talkin'about several layers of paint now),  choosing just the right color...

(Notice the yellow dot!)

Painting began!  (and began, and began, and...several coats of paint! Primer then yellow! I know probably did not choose the correct paint but what can I say...it was FREE!!)

Results...A bright, fun color of yellow! So cheery! So inviting!!

Now the two pretty girlies are all dressed for the PAR-TAY... proudly sitting on the dock on the lake with no unwanted sign posted!!

My friend can enjoy a cup of coffee, watch the sun rise, read the morning news...all in the comfort of her new (FREE) yellow chairs!! Oh, by the way, did I mention the backs recline?  Now the hunt is on for a couple of footstools!!

Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!

I've got to say, I am amazed that a little paint could cause such an amazing transformation!

Hope to see you Sunday.
