A little French bistro chair…..


bistro chair 025

I have wanted a little French bistro chair

for ages but have never

been able to find one at  any of

the shops around here.

Imagine my surprise when

I found this one

the other day and for only $20 .

As you can see it is

a little on the

wonky side but I can live with that!

The after:

With a little white

paint and some sanding……

Here you can barely see

some lettering on

the slats on the backside of the chair.

Just lovely Des! It looks right at home!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It looks great, Des! I think Courtney at French Country Cottage found some at Kmart {or Walmart, one of the two} and painted hers. So you could always go that route if you want more. I love a chair like this in a bathroom holding towels or a fluffy terry robe!

Kelly said...

I love those kind of chairs! It looks so charming in your home. The lighter color you gave it makes it even better.

WELL DONE - and thrifty to boot, just love it - perfect right where you have it.

You "wowed" us for sure!!

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

I just love this chair. Though, my kids would insist on sitting on it and would probably break it on its first day!

I love your little chair & what you have done to it. I have an old wooden folding chair that was my Grandpa's. I've thought about painting it...but can't bring myself to do it. I may blog about it someday & see what someone thinks about it. Keep that warm air coming this way!
