I have a love for vintage chairs! I think I have more chairs, then tables or places to put them!! But, I just can't stop buying them! They just always call out to me and say, "take me home!!"
Well, my sweet mother-in law bought me this beautiful rose chair from a thrift store last week. I have a dining set of similar chairs with the engraved rose, that I bought last year from the same shoppe. For those, I painted them black to match my vintage black drop leaf table, and reupholstered the cushions. I'll have to show a picture later. :)
So, for this sweet chair I decided to leave the finish, at least for now, and just reupholster the cushion. I love taking off the original cushion, and finding actual soft, cotton for the padding!! I know someone had changed the fabric already, so I was happy that they left the real cotton, underneath!
And, now she has a pretty yellow rose fabric! This is one of my favorite prints from the talented Heather Bailey!! I bought it in every color scheme she had when it came out!! This was used at my wedding for a table topper. Each table had a different color, and print. Here's a wedding pic of our special bride and groom table !!

Oh, yes, I also love mason jars!!
So, now I just need to find a sweet, little resting place for my new chair!! Hope you have a wonderful Thursday!! :)
