I am cheap!! Some may call me thrifty but I am just plain cheap!! I like unique things but I will not spend a fortune on something. I will find a way to do it on the cheap!!
So, lets take this chair I found at a yard sale for $5. It had good bones and the lady conducting the sale said it was her parents so she figured it was about 50 years old. She said it also had 3 siblings that "died" a long time ago. So here it is in my garage after bringing it home........
It still has the price sticker on it!!
Anyway, at another sale I found an old Gold Medal flour sack for $4. ( guess where this is going?) So, I removed the dusty, musty seat and painted the chair with chalk paint in olde white. Then I painted some "grain sack" stripes down the back and distressed it. I finished with a coat of clear wax. I then covered the seat with the flour sack. For $9 and some change I got a farmhouse chair!!
