Let's Have A Garden Party!

I have an old iron chair I found at an estate sale. "She" had all the right curves, but she looked a little pitiful sitting all by herself in the corner! lol! All she needed was some good ole' TLC and to be dolled up a little! So with a little imagination, paint and a sewing machine, I got to work!









I added a touch of french...a sprinkle of shabby...and a little bit of a garden chic to the design...and this is what I came up with! A french garden chic occasional chair...She could be used in the home...a feminine office/study, perhaps? A beautiful garden inspired boudoir (bedroom)?...Ohh la la! ;) Or as an accent/occasional chair in any living space!





But wouldn't be fun to add her to your back porch or even use her in your next garden party? She is all dressed up with a party dress! Lol! A little unexpected surprise and a little whimsy always makes for a great party or a nice, relaxing place to retreat...Don't you think?





I have to admit...I love her soo...I have moved her everywhere I could think of...But sadly, my home is too small! :( So, she is going to a new home...I am sure a quite beautiful one, too! She is painted, distressed and dressed! Ready to be loved & used...& maybe a little abused! ;) The more chips, nicks, and booboos she has...the more beautiful she will become!







Asking $150.00


If you are in the Houston area....Or want to find out about shipping...You can contact me for more information. screamingmemedesigns@gmail.com



Her humble beginning...she actually had a horrible fabric on the seat...I had to change it before I snapped this photo...I wanted for her to be just as beautiful while her dress was be laundered..


{Before} Meme dolled her up!

It didn't let you link because you have no link back to my party in your post. Just add one and then you can link.

Hi there~ I adore your pretty french chair! I just made some flirty slipcovers for my outdoor seating area too- I love that look! Would love for you to come share this at Feathered Nest Friday :)

You really dolled her up! Just beautiful! It's too bad you can't keep her; she looks wonderful in the picture next to that wire cage.
