There is just something about this little chair

There is just something about this little chair

During one of my visits last week to a local consignment shop, I set eyes on this little chair. It had me at hello and I still can’t figure out why! I actually left the store to go into town and run some errands but thought about the chair so much I had to stop back on my return home and pick it up! You just don’t find furniture made like this anymore; solid wood, very sturdy and the perfect size for my precious three year old.

I sanded it down and sprayed a good two coats of black spray paint. Once dried, I distressed the edges a bit with another good sanding.

I’m still not sure what I am going to do with this little guy ~ I just know he was meant to come home with me!

I thought about making him into a timeout chair and stenciling white ‘timeout’ letters on the front…but I like to think I have have
a perfect little angel right now so that may have to be a future project!

For now I think he’ll make a cute little plant holder for my entry way until our Grandfather Heirloom clock arrives.

Have you ever purchased anything because you felt it calling your name?? Is it even possible to feel sorry for a little chair that needs a home ~ or am I just a little sentimental push-over! Enjoy! XOXO


  1. Great find, I like the cut outs and the lines of the chair. Looks good in black.
    Thanks for sharing and for visiting, come back soon.

  2. I love that chair–it looks amazing black. I love the contrast of the black chair with the white pumpkins–I would love to have you post this to my Its So Very Creative party


  3. I would have snapped it up too. I am an chairaholic myself! Looks great painted.

    Thanks for the sweet comment.

  4. Great chair. The black is so modern yet classic. Thanks for sharing, and I think you did right my not painting a word on it. It’s perfect like it is.

  5. Oh yes, that is a darling piece. AND I have bought something because is was calling my name…it was a large mirror—I wasn’t sure it would look right ..but somehow I just felt it was the right thing for the spot and I had to get it!

  6. I love chairs! Oh my, it looks just so darn cute!

  7. Looks great! Things do sometimes call my name. This summer there was a big over-stuffed chair and I resisted the temptation. When I went back, it was gone. Boo-hoo. I really wish I had listened.

  8. WOW I love it! It just looks so much better in black. I may have to be on the look out for a cute chair now.

  9. That chair would have been calling my name, too….great detail on the back!! You did a great job, love it
