Finally - Metamorphosis Monday

This was the rickety old chair I bought at the church garage sale about 2 weeks ago. DH rebuilt the legs to make it a sturdy chair again. We painted it and made a new seat for it.

Here it is all fixed up with a toile covered seat. Notice I added a medallion in the center - I thought it needed that. Some people think that DH does everything - well, I did painting and recovering of the seat so I did take part in this chair's reincarnation. It will be used in various places all through my house. Click on the picture to see it close up. Thanks again to Phil!

Now, be sure to check in with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see the other changes that people envision in things that are cast-offs.

Excellent job! I love the medallion -- it does add just the right touch to the chair, makes it more "special." Great transformation!

You did a reallly good job but I want to know (for my own reference) did you have to sand down the whole chair first and give it an undercoat? That is what I find intimidating!

Thanks also for the visits re the D Day landings. I found your comments about your dad very interesting. It has taken me so long to get back on track after being away and getting blogs posted that I have neglected all those who kindly commented. Love Eleanor
