Woke up bright and early on Saturday morning, well as we do everyday as Oscar, our very own little alarm clock decides that's how it is. But today I thought I'm actually going to leave the house bright and early too and have a little look at the local car boot sale on the green.
Oscar and I had a good nose around all the stalls and I did manage to find a few nice little bits. And I felt content when on the final row a lovely lady had some old buttons for me and also a whole range of brand new brightly coloured buckets and spades for Oz. So we left the car boot feeling happy with our purchases. In fact Oscar was fast asleep but I felt happier knowing I had also got him something!
As it was such a beautiful day we decided to walk home along the beach and I can't describe how thrilled I am that we did, as this is where I found this little gem of a chair. Just sitting amongst some other bits and bobs outside a house, with a sign saying 'please help yourself'. That was it, I sat straight on that chair and thought its actually quite comfy and rang my husband, who is a man who has a van, so super handy for these situations!
It is in need of some love and attention but my lovely mum is an upholsterer so I shall have to speak very kindly to her . (Hi Mum) I couldn't wait to tell her about my find and once I began stripping the chair and discovered it had an iron frame work back, she seemed very impressed and said it is more than likely an original early Victorian chair.
Now I am on the search for that perfect fabric and I shall keep you posted on the progress of the makeover. Thanks for stopping by.
This was one of my purchases. Only £1, I can't decide whether to paint it or leave it gold?
