The ugly duckling...

Once upon a time I stopped by a small resale shop and spotted this gal...she looked a bit lonely, neglected, and well, just sad.

(I think I may have a tiny obsession with chairs.  For such a small home, I could seat at least 20.  

Maybe not all in one room together, but everyone would have a chair.  ;)

I brought her home and cleaned her up.  Then I gave her a once over with some ASCP in Country Grey.   She perked up a bit, she may have even smiled.

Then she got a generous wipe down with some clear wax.  A bit of sanding, buffing, and she looked as if she was ready to hit the runway.

"I'm too sexy for my spindles..."

And she lived happily ever after.

The end.


  1. Beautiful chair!! (and now I have that song in my head... thanks...)

  2. I too have a 'small' thing about chairs! It is one of the pieces I redo and sell the most of at the shop where I have my reshabbed pieces. I can never pass up a chair or two at a sale.
    She is too sexy for her spindles. Hahahahaa
    Hugs, Gee

  3. This is where we part...I LOVE the history of the patina on this old chair before paint :-) It is beautiful after tho, nice work as usual.

    1. Carol- I know! I did find myself hesitating just a bit ;)

  4. I LOVE chairs too..we had 40 for Thanksgiving last year and I was able to sit everybody in a wooden chair...obsession??? I think so..oh but it could be much worse. This chair is just adorable!!!! My husband built me a 12' long dining room table and eventually I hope to have 14 different chairs to around it in all different colors :)


Thanks so much for popping in. I appreciate all of your lovely comments...Tricia
