Poor Old Chair

Click to enlarge photo

What was once old, unwanted is now new and welcomes Family and Friends to my Home. 

At one time this old chair was in it's glory and  I can hear the voice of the lady who once owned it when it was new, saying don't scratch my new dinning chairs.  Just like a Lady when she gets something new for the family home. 
the center of a dinning room decor and many family dinners.

Time has most certainly change for some of us who's taste has changed with time and the style of furniture we choose for out home.  I can recall when most of us wanted New.and now its Antique, Shabby Chic, and Primitive are, for the most part the chosen style for our homes. 

Along the way we have slowly moved into recuing old worn and discarded items to decorate with.  The old chair in the photo is one I rescued from a yard sale and the person who was selling it gave it to me.  Don't know if she knew how happy she made me and that was about 9 years ago.  I have used it for a sewing machine chair and it has slowly become weak from all the use.  So for now the Rabbit has a home.

The chair idea is not one of my idea's a picture was posted to the forum and being I had the rabbit and chair, decided to Make-Do one some what like the one in the picture posted.. 

Painted the rabbit white and stressed it with black shoe polish wax.  Bought a plastic flower pot saucer, two bags of moss from the dollar tree and two little bundles of flowers.  Took all of thirty minutes to paint and put it all together, the cash out lay was less then $8.00.  It now set beside the entry to the front door of the house.

God Bless and Have a Magical Day

Hugs, LenZie.
