I'm a sucker for some spray paint projects.

I got busy cleaning out the garage at the old homestead yesterday.

And what to my wondering eyes should appear?
An old chair, I'd forgotten even was here.

All brown and dingie, All chippy and torn.
Sitting there beggin to come up re born


As I put on my gloves and got out my spray can,
I turned to see hubbo heading toward the trash can.

You wouldn't be thinking to throw that away?
give me her please , todays not the day.

Cause springs in the air with lots of rebirth
and that landfill just doesn't need anymore girth.

So quickly I primed her and then sprayed her good

All white and refreshed, now she's bettered my mood.

Now some flowers adorn her, where a hole used to be

As she dresses a porch front for all to see.

You saved me she purrs, kept me from doom

And simply because my garage needed some room!

Posting at these parties, if I get time.

  1. LOL! Eileen - you are so funny! I could just imagine you reciting this poem as you took the chair from you hubby while ignoring the "Did Dr. Seuss just invade my house..???" look on his face! lol! Great story and darling chair!

    Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog, too. I believe that all of us have a special place that truly calls to our hearts... :)

  2. Lol!! This is hilarious! I love the chair. Now I wish I had an old chair with a hole in it. :o) Hmm...who needs four dining room chairs anyway? Thanks for stopping by my corner of blogsville and leaving me a little note. I was so excited when I read you live in NJ. I just moved here 9 months ago and took my first trip down the shore last Sunday for Mother's Day. I am in love. We stopped by Point Pleasant and Seaside Heights. I've got pictures of my outing up on my blog. Will be coming by here often. :o)

  3. It is so super cute - love the finished project!! Great job.

    Happy Masterpiece Monday to you :O)

  4. I love chairs used for floral containers. Once my aunt went dumpster diving and got 2 rocking chairs. One of them was broken, and I told her I thought it would look great in her garden. She gave it to me and I did use it. When I grew tired of it, I slapped $1 price tag on it at my yard sale.

    Everyone made snide comments about that chair until I told some people what I did with it. Suddenly this woman immediately wanted it, saying she could now invision what it would look like outside.

    I guess me and you know what others don't always know. Old and broken look great in the garden!

  5. SO SO pretty! Love the details on this beauty -- you did a great job rescuing her!

  6. Love the chair with the flower pot.
    Idea for the faded blue demin. Use fabric paint
    and stencil in your favorite colors using sea
    stars, shells, urchins and any beach item you like.

  7. Hi Eileen! Oh, my what a clever one you are - in many ways! Love your olden chair and you did give her new life plus your prose - charming! :)
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  8. She looks so pretty holding the flowers! I love the cut detailing on the back. Now to find me a chair!
    Happy Met Monday!
