This is the chair I got at the Madison Bouckville Antique show back in August.   I had never seen one like it and when my husband and I laid eyes on it, we both sort of looked at each other and we knew right then what the other was thinking.

 The price was only $50 and we ended up paying $40.  Not a bad deal for a vintage piece that matches my metal garden chairs so well, especially since I have been searching for the chaise lounge of my dreams forEVER. 

 

I painted the worn handles, touched up the wheel paint and spray painted the rest a fresh coat of white to protect it from the weather. 

It took  me until now to finally get around to making the cushion.  That was the expensive part of the whole thing. Foam is not cheap and good outdoor fabric either,but now that it’s finished I couldn’t be happier.

I think my dog thinks it’s a new bed for him….
