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….
move over thunder, it’s mine!

What I realized doing this post is that all my stained glass pieces except one, has flowers on it. Go figure… me,… flowers. This first one hangs in my kitchen. I love it’s simplicity and it’s colors. The light that streams through in the morning is cheerful even on gloomy days.
I bought this arts and crafts styled one on ebay and unfortunately it cracked in one of the panes during shipping. Oh well ….it adds character!
This green one was given to me by my neighbor. It was in her garage covered in paint. Someone had actually painted the entire back side. It was in sad shape. I gladly took it off her hands though. I am so glad I took the time to restore. it.
These next ones are my short lived interest in making stained glass.
Although I love the finished products, that art is rather tough on the fingers.
I think I cut them more than the glass.
