Gossip Chair

Now that I am back home I need to get started with furniture again. This is a simple gossip chair I found. Remember when we used to have telephones connected to wire. I remember going to an electronic store looking for the longest cord I could find so I could bring the phone into every room!  The cord would get pulled so much the coils eventually pulled out. Looking at this gossip chair it reminded me of that time.

Of course I forgot the before picture...drats! It needed a little work with loose spindles, but all in all it was in good shape.



I painted it grey and found an airmail envelope to modpodge on the desk part. Simple but cute.


I was attracted to this one because of the postmark. The year and the city and state! I felt like it  was meant to go on this piece. Tells a story!



This cute little bench will be in my booth soon!

I will be going to Haven next week and I am so excited!! I finally get to meet all of the wonderful people I have gotten to know. If you are going leave me a comment so I can meet you and say hi!
