Side Chair Gets Five Dollar Makeover!




This chair was given new life by Mary Beth. It cost her $5 total! She used beautiful Kaffe selvages and I love that purple paint. Didn't she do a fabulous job? Yayyy, Mary Beth!
Thank you to Jackie of www.cvquiltworks.blogspot.com for telling us about this! The Selvage Blog needs lots of field reporters like Jackie and you to find these things! Keep them coming!

Thanks, guys! The chair cost me $5 at a yard sale. I had everything else already. I sewed the selvages on a scrap piece of strong curtain lining from another project. I had leftover lavender paint from my 2 year old daughter's bed frame. The chair is for her bedroom (although I sooooo wanted it for my sewing room but she loves it too). She is still excited to go to her room and sit on her chair to play with her dollhouse which is sitting on another yard sale item (table). Yeah!

this makes me think I might look for a chair for my sewing table at a garage sale instead of keeping my eyes open at the stores for a good chair on clearance! just what I needed! Thank you!
