it's blue, it's chippy.....

The question would be, "Laura, what have you dragged home now?".

You know me, if it is old, primitive, and has chippy paint I am going to love it. If the chippy paint is blue I am going to love it even more. If it is $1 I am going to be over the moon about it.


It was just sitting at a yard sale waiting for me this morning and it was filthy. The lady who was selling it said it had belonged to her husband's grandmother. I think she must have had it sitting next to a coal stove because I have never seen any more black come off of a piece of furniture. 

But I scrubbed it down and disinfected it and after moving some things around it is in the perfect spot.


I added a pillow I made from an old quilt and I am now loving it.


In fact, it may be my new best friend.

  7. It would look very pretty with a plant resting on it too, Laura. In a sweet galvanized bucket perhaps?

    1. It would, but I'm thinking I might want to sit on it. It is very sturdy. :)

    1. I only cut mine if they are really in bad condition. It helps me to salvage what is left. :)
