Vintage Chair Makeover for the Garden~

Hi Friends~
Yesterday I shared with you my treasure hunt haul
and this wonderful vintage chair was among that loot!

I could not believe my luck when I found this treasure.
It was just what I was looking for to makeover for the garden holding a potted flower.

It is sturdy, has great details and just the right size.

So I began the makeover
by taking out the seat
which revealed a perfect size opening to hold a flower pot!!

Next I gave the chair a dry brushing
with honeysuckle bloom.
I wanted the old finish to show through
and look distressed at the same time.
I used a stencil brush for the dry brushing.

Look how the details really pop with this technique!

The opening fit a flower pot perfectly.

And here it is in the little meditation garden with
St. Francis!
Love, Love!!
A coat of varnish so it will last
and enjoying the addition.

Remember the oval flower basket
I also found on the treasure hunt?
It holds these two darling
Daddy's Little Girl Rose pots.


Thanks for stopping by today.
See you next time with more
Southern DayDreams
from Texas.

Ya'll Be Good!!
