French Style Confession Time!!

What can I say?  I love chairs!  Yep, I admit it!  I love chairs!
And lately I'm drawn to the...dare I say...French inspired!
Not only chairs but any item that resembles Frenchy!!

I know, I know...is it a sickness?  The only cure that I know requires some shopping...
( well really a lot of  LOOKIN'  ) ...a J-GRITS must have a plan!!

 For example take this French Gold Chair...the fabric against the gold frame is just eye popping!!
(outthereinteriors.com)

Or this shiny white leatherette studded armchair...

Constructed in North Carolina the Cora Chair...

 Check out this wonderful remake...
(wovenhome.blogspot.com)

Many of you out in blogland have restyled and reclaimed so many wonderful 'frenchy' things and this chair represents just one!   I couldn't list them all but do not fear I have looked at several!
(say hundreds, no thousands)


 Oh yeah, about my addiction...
Shopping at our local Home Goods... 
(Don't y'all just love HG? As my grandfather use to say 'you could lose a crop in there',  
meaning I spend way too much time in that store!)  
...I found several French inspired thingys...



Notice the nailheads...
Covering a box...
And the sides...




Another side...


Well I have the inspiration.  Now to find the perfect item to restyle.  I've looked through my stash and nothing 'hits me' as the ONE! Does that mean more shopping?  Yes, I think so!

Need to stop by my local fabric store...

How about y'all?  Do you have a 'confession' to make too!!

See ya down the junkin' road!!

Too cute Jan! Oh how I love Grandpa's saying. How true it is! H.G. is one of my fav's. Love the chairs! The tan check and the script are my favorites. I have a fetish for outdoor chairs. Love, love the metal french ones. Would be in 7th heaven if I could find a truck load along the junkin trail!
Thanks for sharing with my party!
Hugs,
Jann

Thanks for sharing the Frenchy chairs, I have been searching for a Home Goods near me so I can start going there. Thanks for sharing and stopping by.

Home Goods ROCKS, seriously. They have the best rugs, and so affordable. What I find funny, though, is--isn't all the furniture at Home Goods lately very "Frenchy" in style?? It's the same stuff I am finding at thrift stores, only more expensive and light-weight (i.e. cheap). It just reaffirms that the stuff I am finding at thrift stores is "fasionable" and in style! LOL
