Weekend Find

While at home I always pop into the little town near my parents’ home where there are a few antique shops.  As I was meandering through the largest store where I usually find all my good stuff, I turned the corner and saw this emerald green velvet chair with a unique faux bamboo arm detail and killer brass nail head trim. I immediately thought it would be expensive as it’s in great condition but for some reason they priced it low. REALLY low.  And so I hurriedly sat my butt down on it to guard it while having Andrew go look for someone to take my money so we could leave before they realized they forgot to add a very important digit or two. I’m pondering what to do with it- lacquer it white or black and change the velvet to peacock blue or dark grey? Maybe a print? I’m not sure yet- as it’s still in my parents’ barn since our car was too full of gifts to get it home this trip! Andrew thinks I need a 12 step program for buying vintage chairs. I may have to agree.
