Show & Tell Friday...grand new chair.

Well we have been busy around here at Castle Queen with my hubby having been off on vacation for 3 weeks. I wish it could have been 3 weeks in Italy or something fabulous like that, but alas it was stay at home and work vacation.
We have been getting rid of popcorn ceilings, painting, replacing deck boards, putting up molding and so on!
So today I had to get out of the house for a bit, take a break from the paint smell.
I went downtown to a local antique store where I always find treasures for cheap and love it!
So I am showing and telling the new chair I found for our bedroom.

It has great lions head details on the back and on the arms. Been sort of distressed already and I love it. Not sure about the upholstery but it will work.
And the chair I had moved from the living room and recovered for in here will go nicely or OK in the family room.
So again I played musical furniture.
But I got this beauty for $47.50!
What do you think?

I am going to see if I can clean up the Naugahyde even better, it is in good shape though. But I like the tealy greeny distressed paint, is sort of our accent color in this room, so it works. Plus the gold on it goes well with the gold accents in the room. Also it doesn't stick out so far for walking room etc. in here.
I think it is a keeper!

I am joining in on Show & Tell Friday with Cindy and everyone at
Be sure and check out her great blog and see who else is showing and telling this week!
Have a great weekend!

One of the many magnificent things that can be made out of manzanita branches are bird perches and bird stands. These stands can be free status 6 feet or taller, mounted on a large wood or concrete base for your cage and aviary bird , or as small as ten inches long to clip onto the wall of a small bird cage.
