My latest up-cycling project!

Compilation photo showing before and after

Found this beautiful old chair being thrown away.

So I rescued it!

Cleaned it up,
Sanded it down,
and gave it a new lick of paint!

I love up-cycling, as I got to give an old chair, a second life.

You never know the history of something, and you could save it from being thrown to scrap. And I have a beautiful chair for my dressing table now too!

 I love the carved detailing on the legs, by doing a light coat of white on top, and leaving the dark wood in the grooves brought the carving out in its full glory!

And, it fits perfectly with my up-cycled dressing table!

(See photos below!)
