How to tell you are really on the mend after having the flu : When you get excited about a thrifted chair find!
Remember this post? I lauded my friend for bringing me and my family Culver’s Custard when we were all recovering from the flu and craving some cold, creamy deliciousness. Well that same friend text me the next day. The text included a picture of a chair. A chair that was sitting at Goodwill. With a price tag that proclaimed it $8.99. I promptly text her back and informed her she was not to leave the store without that chair. She replied, ‘Are you sure? The arms are a little loose, Travis might have to tighten them.’ I responded ‘I can tighten the arms – look at those LEGS!’ So she bought the chair and dropped it off to me. I made her just put it on the porch and leave just in case I still had germs that I might inadvertently breath on her.
So what do you think? Would you have left this beauty there??
You don’t consider her a beauty? Ah, but that’s where you are wrong my dear! You have to look beyond the not-so-pretty blue fabric she is dressed in. And the old, worn finish.
Squint. And dream with me. Soft white or grey paint. A lovely linen ‘dress’. Oh yes, she is indeed a lovely lady. She just needs a little makeover. Sort of like ‘The Princess Diaries’. With a little tweaking, a little guidance, a little instruction in the proper way to dress and sit, and perform, she will be living a delightful dream-come-true. Provided, of course, that her mentor gets to her makeover promptly. And since I doubt Julie Andrews will waltz in to get this one in shape for the dance, I will have to take this makeover upon myself. Wish me luck. I really have no deadline. And you KNOW what a bad thing that can be.
What do you think? Will I get this chair remade sometime in 2013 or will it still be languishing away under piles of fabric and projects when 2014 rolls around??
