Sweet Chair

April 28, 2010

I’ve been a bad blogger lately, but I think I have good reason, right? It’s amazing how one tiny little fig-sized unborn person can just wreak havoc on a person’s body. I’m sure most of you know exactly what I’m talking about.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining (ok, I’m totally complaining), but I’m typically a high-energy person who does a million things a day and right now, it’s just not possible!

So I guess I have to lower my standards for myself a bit and just relax. Easy to say – hard for me to do.

Despite how yucky I’m feeling, I do feel incredibly blessed to have this little person growing inside me. It’s completely amazing how God designed this whole “pregnancy” thing. Completely amazing.

Anywaaaay, moving right along…

I picked up this wooden ladderback chair from the thrift store last week. I just couldn’t resist the rattan seat, and it was in really good shape. So, you know me, I snatched it up! Check it out in all it’s “brown-ness”!


Gave it a couple good coats of white paint and distressed the edges a bit.


I painted the “cafe” wording on the back using acrylic craft paint. I printed the wording from the computer, then traced it onto the chair with carbon paper.


It’s going into the French Farmhouse, so let me know if you want it!
