Little antique chair completed!

Posted on

I’ve been busy over the past (what seems like lots of!) weeks doing up this little chair for’T’ I searched ebay, shops, antique stores etc and then came accross this one on ebay which I won for 5 pounds!!! (I had been bidding on others at 5 times that price so was really pleased when it arrived!

It is thought to be approx 100 years old and possibly and old school or church chair – I love that it has some history behind it and wonder how many children have used it! It took a LONG time to sand it down by hand (I hate that bit!)¬† was glad to paint it and then used briwax as suggested by my friend – it gives it such a lovely finish and I’m really pleased with it.

‘T’ seems to like it – her first reaction to it was to climb on it and stand on it! So it is in her bedroom for now – until I know she can be left safely with it in the lounge!

The little cushion was made by an old school friend of mine who we recently visited – I hadn’t intended the chair to match it but they are a prefect pair! Thanks so much for the cushion G – we both LOVE it and will treasure it forever!! xx

Remember to head over to ‘1st Unique Gifts’ for¬†another week of ‘Handmade Monday’ xx
