Chair person


I ALWAYS FEEL FOR THE OLD AND ABANDONED..WHETHER IT BE A LIVING THING OR AN OBJECT.

WANDERING THOUGH AN OLD STORE I FOUND THIS POOR CHAIR AND IT’S SIDEKICK THE FOOTSTOOL.

POOR THING

POOR THING

ON CLOSE INSPECTION THEY HAD BEEN BADLY RECOVERED..VISIBLE HAND STITCHING AND TATTED BITS OF MATERIAL..THE LEGS ON THE FOOTSTOOL..WELL I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON THERE..

BUT FOR $35.00 FOR THE PAIR I THOUGHT THAT THEY DESERVED A SECOND CHANCE..I LIKED THE WORN ARMS ON THE CHAIR AND TO SIT IN IT WAS COMFY WITH MEMORIES OF BUTTS GONE BY..I COULDN’T RESIST.

I AM BY NO MEANS AN UPHOLSTERER I JUST LOVE A CHALLENGE..

AND AS FOR MY ‘STYLE’ WELL I DON’T HAVE ONE..I LIKE DIFFERENT THINGS FROM DIFFERENT YEARS ..NO RHYME OR REASON..JUST WHAT I FIND THAT APPEALS..I AM MORE LIKELY TO BE CLASSED AS QUIRKY..WHICH SUITS ME FINE..I DON’T WANT WHAT EVERONE ELSE HAS AND I SUPPOSE BY RE-DOING THINGS I GET THE CHANCE TO HAVE THAT.

I WENT OP SHOPPING..FOR MY OVERSEAS FRIENDS THIS IS THRIFT SHOPPING..USED OLD UNWANTED THINGS AT BARGAIN PRICES,

FIRST ONE I WENT INTO I FOUND THE MATERIAL I WANTED.

AN OLD BEDSPREAD..THICK MATERIAL SLIGHTLY EMBOSSED COLORS PERFECT FOR MY SEWING ROOM!

$15.00 A STEAL!

I SET ABOUT REMOVING THE COVERING…YUKKKK!!

YUKK!

YUKK!

SAD IT WAS PRETTY ONCE

FIRST THE FOOTSTOOL..THE FRINGE ON THE BEDSPREAD IS AN ADDED BONUS!..

ARMED WITH MY TACKS AND GOOD OLD GLUE GUN..I GOT BUSY..

FOOTSTOOL

FOOTSTOOL

AND THEN ONTO THE CHAIR…I HAVE GONE TO TOWN WITH THE FRINGE..LIKE I SAID I AM QUIRKY!

QUEEN OF THE QUIRKY

QUEEN OF THE QUIRKY

I WILL SAND THE WOOD BACK LIGHTLY AND GIVE IT EITHER A STAIN OR AN OIL..AND THEN I AM OFF SEARCHING FOR FEET FOR THE FOOTSTOOL..THE COLORS ARE MATCHING THE DRESSER I JUST FINISHED AND EVENTUALLY MY SEWING ROOM WILL BE FINISHED..I HAVE ALSO BEEN WORKING WITH OLD PICTURE FRAMES,OLD PAPER AND MATERIAL AND HAVE DONE SOME FRAMES THAT I AM PLEASED WITH TOO..NOT TO MENTION MY MACARON ADVENTURE ..SO THIS WEEK HAS BEEN ABOUT FINDING THINGS TO DO WHEN THE WEATHER IS CRAPPY OUTSIDE..

HAVE A GREAT DAY EVERYONE AND WHAT WILL YOU SEE IN YOUR WORLD THAT COULD BE GIVEN A NEW LEASE OF LIFE?

          • How cold is it there?? I always thought ‘down under’ was warmish even in Winter (I show my ignorance)….Nylablue gets ‘rangy’ during our Winters & it is frigid out so she can’t be ouside….I always play with her more….mind you she has slowed down alot so maybe she won’t be as wound up this coming Winter…
            What do you take for the Fibro?? I only take Acetominophen daily & for severe pain I use Codeine Phosphate. I am too gunshy of Fibro meds as I have read some bad reports….My Hyperostosis has gone into a flareup & I am hobbling around…”pawthetick” as Nylablue would say. I did not get the proper Lidocaine injections in June & I can feel it now!! UGH. Plus the Chiropracotor said ‘Just come once a week’ for 4 or 5 weeks so I can assess how well you are doing…..he is going to see a cripple by Monday….hopefully he lets me go twice weekly or I am in trouble….I have to stay mobile 9as you can understand).
            It’s always something isn’t it???

            • Where we are in the far south it gets really cold..we get snow in Australia to most of the top of the country is nice temperature but tropical rain etc..where my daughter is in Canberra is the coldest at the moment,Canberra is located to the north of us but they have been having -6c mornings..we have had a few-4c so pretty chilly…come summer last year we had 45c day after day so it is extreme! The meds for fibro are Lyrica..have beenon them for about three years..have been off them for 2 and a half months but have started with one tab a morning..when it flares I am in big trouble..i can barely walk for muscle pain,headaches daily,night vision that bad I can’t drive at night,it’s a pain in the butt! the meds do have some bad side effects but I haven’t had any..i have had to change cholesterol meds as the Lipitor caused muscle damage..apparently Americans are suing left right and centre over this..here they say nothing..i am also on arthritis meds..so I tend to rattle..old bugger that I am hahahahah..hope you don’t end up too much bent like a pretzel!!

  1. Very well done, fozziemum. Granny gave her chairs a new look too a long time ago, so she knows how difficult it is to do…but, that’s worth the nobility of real work (I don’t know if I say this right in English) 🙂
