My "new" chair

Now, before my family and friends get too excited because they are thinking, "You don't need a new chair!", this is actually a refurbished chair I already had.

I bought this youth chair at a barn sale about 30 years ago. I kept it in my kitchen and would occasionally use it when a child was here for a meal. And then it would be put back in a corner. 
A few weeks ago, I found out that the art teacher at school painted furniture. I took it to her right away, asked for a rooster and Voila! I picked it up today and I love it! 

A closeup of the rooster. Isn't it pretty?!

Now, it can't go back in the corner and I have to find a better spot. Just wanted to enjoy the pictures tonight!!

After my post this morning about our beautiful weather, I was out for a while this afternoon and didn't mind it a bit. The weather is so nice. I'm even closing some windows now because it is too chilly.

Go figure!


  1. Oooooh, I love the rooster! What a beautiful piece of furniture!!

  2. Oh my gosh...what a treasure! I love it!

  3. I wonder where that better spot will be???

  4. What a darling piece! Barn Sale...hmmm....that sounds even better than a garage sale!

  5. Nancy I love your chair. Your friend did an awesome job.

  6. That is a terrific chair. BTW, your header picture is lovely, too.
