A Chair Fit For A Queen.

Remember the VANITY and the CORKBOARD that I made for my daughter's room???  Well, if you don't hop on over and check them out ;)  I have been looking for a chair to go with the vanity.  I had in mind what I wanted and was patiently waiting to find it.

Last week I made a trip to the Thrift Store and found this beauty!  Isn't she LOVELY?  Well, maybe not so much right now, but she was only $6 and sturdy as a rock.  I could see her potential and it made me happy giddy.

I took her home and tore her apart.  Sanded her down and started her transformation.  I found the material at a fabric store that specializes in upholstery fabric.  Are you ready for this?  It was on sale for $5 a yard.  Oh yes, it was.  I was giddy deliriously happy!  It matches her room perfectly.

I LOVE how she turned out.  She looks wonderful with the VANITY and the CORKBOARD.  So glad I stopped into the Thrift Store that day.  Now my daughter has a vanity chair fit for a queen :)

I am LINKING UP HERE.  Pop over and check them out.

I love what you did with this chair! It's amazing what some paint and new fabric can do! I just had to go back and see your vanity and cork board and I love them as well! I had a similar desk (as your vanity) and matching bedroom set when I was a young girl. I no longer have those pieces but bought smaller end tables and dressers for my daughter in a similar pattern. I'm a little intimidated to paint them, one of these days I gain the courage!

This inspires me to brave some reupholstering... My Mom was so great at it and I've never tried. I have an old sewing bench (threw the cabinet away and kept the bench and machine)and I'm going to start with that. Great pictures too. Found you over at Diana's (TGC) Happy Monday. =)
