Chippy Green Chair


This is my favorite find from last weekend.
 
 
 I was looking at this chippy chair in the dark, prior to sunrise, on someone's carport, and I could tell it had lovely patina.
 
 

I grabbed it!


It has not been cleaned or waxed yet in these images. 


I have no idea where it's going to land in the yellow house but it's staying.

Would you have bought it for four dollars like I did?

Linking to Debra at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday.


may joy and peace surround you always

  2. You're darn right I would have scarfed it up. Me and you would have had to pull it from each other. Just kidding. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

  6. I would have snapped it up in a minute. I have a real thing for chairs and have a couple like this just to tuck in a nook or set a plant on. It was well worth the money, Olive!

  8. Heck yes. I have a similar chair in green from an Estate sale and I paid a lot more than that for it. I just love the finish and all the wear on it. I have mine in my bedroom.
