thoroughly thrifty adventures-Goodwill #8

On my most recent GW adventure,
I spotted something across the room-

Oh, I don't need another chair-
I know that and you do too!!

But, I can't help myself-
it's an obsession-

there, I admitted it-
I have a problem.

But, how could I resist-

The carved backs-

The roses-

The tapestry has seen better days-
 so bye bye to that and hello
to new cushion with fab fabric!!

And put together, they will make a beautiful bench-
Stay tuned-
Can't wait to show the finished product-
Oh, and silly me-
forgot to mention, each chair cost me $4.99-Gotta love it!!

But, as always, gotta fly, Claire


  1. These are gorgeous the carvings are wonderful

  2. What a deal you got! These have "great bones" and are perfect candidates for repurposing.

  3. A bench! I never would have thought of that~ can't wait to see it!

    Thanks for joining in my Club G.W. with Charm Bracelet Diva Party!


  4. I think you should do the bench up like a Mackenzie Childs piece, Claire! Loads of color and whimsy.... Wanted to say hi and thank you for visiting. I looked for your name and pic on my followers list since you said you had signed up to follow. I know that the follower widget was down through blogger yesterday- maybe it didn't take? Anyway, glad you're along for the ride. :-) Sue

  5. I really like Sue's idea of a Mackenzie Childs look! And Sue has great taste!
