Still Singing the Blues

You all might remember my first installation of Old Blue. This was an antique chair I made over to put in my foyer beside the buffet. Unfortunately, the chair was just way too short for its intended spot. It looked like a doll chair sitting there in my foyer. Seriously. You can find the details on that redo here.

I set out to find a new, taller chair for my foyer and happened to stumble across this gem at my local goodwill.

Isn't she a beaut? I love the caning in the back and the curves at the top. Plus she has some great front legs on her too. Best of all this little gem was only $8.98. What a steal!

I loved the original version of Old Blue so much that I went to the fabric store with my fingers crossed that they would still have the same fabric from last time. And they did! Then after a light sanding and some priming I busted out the trusty Valspar Tropical Oasis. Here she is

I think I'll redo the original old blue to use as a desk chair. Updates to follow!
