Trash to Treasure Child's Reading chair. Little Golden books draped over the entire chair.
The before of the chair. Was in the container of lost and forgotten toys.
The penny rug was hand made and a table gift at a State Day.
|This is the inspiration for the chair. I stayed at my daughters house for a couple of day's and she made this full size in her guest room. Real pages from an old book, antique chair and burlap feed container seat and milk bottle vase.|
Here is the finished piece along with a few treasures I redid today from my week end treasure hunts. The little pink stove and refrigerator are 1/48 scale I believe. I found them in my stash. Debbie Young had them for sale at the last Convention I attended. Resin and less than an inch high. Too cute. I have the table and chair somewhere. The pages of the book are printed from the Internet and reduced to size in the picture print area in Windows gallery. Interspersed between are printed pages. All are strung onto a long piece of thread and draped over the chair. The chair was painted over the creme color, green and then white. While still cool and almost dry I sanded around the edges and legs to show wear.
|This was a new shipment of Halloween material that just came in. I am going to incorporate into chairs and bedding for Halloween. The dotted material glows in the dark.|
|My in house TSA AGENT checking out my duffel bag for the goods. I stayed to babysit the fur babies this past weekend. The area is in the Flea Market Mecca of town and a lot of thrift stores. Had a great time.|
|A bag of jewel finds for .25 cents and a plastic weather vane cupola from a child's play set will come in handy|
|This bag of handmade wicker balls are mini light covers. I thought they would be a form in a topiary tree. They were .30 cents for 100 a bag. I got a few bags and put one in a mason jar. Looks good. I thought cut in half they could be baskets.|
