A Pair of Cane Back Chairs

Hi there friends...
While out antiquing a few weeks ago I came across a pair of these pretty cane back chairs. 
 I LOVE any chairs that have either cane or rush on them...and when the owner of the shop said he would give them both to me for $50 I said SOLD!
~~~
Of course they got a makeover...
Here's the before...they were in great condition but when I bought them I knew I was going to use them in my kitchen as the head chairs so I painted them AS Versailles to match the other chairs in there.
Cute fabric...I just didn't like the way it went in my kitchen.
I always love seeing a before and after side by side...




I'm having a new valance made for the window over my kitchen sink and this tiny check fabric is one of the fabrics that will be used...so I tried a piece out on the chair cushions.

Once I'm done making the changes in my kitchen and family room...I'll show you how the chairs look in there. 
~~~
I love having non matching chairs as head chairs how about you?

A Tole Container & New/Old Bench

 Hi there friends...
I think I need an intervention of some sort because I can't seem to stay away from the flea market or antique stores!!
I've been on a good luck streak every time I go...and everything that's come home with me I've gotten amazing deals on so I couldn't pass them up!
~~~
Take for instance this large tole container...it was originally marked $100 and the owner of the space had it marked down to $30 because it was sitting there so long...
I got it for $25...(insert happy dance)!!
 I filled it with dried hydrangeas that I had in my storage room for over two years and they still look great!

 ~~~
 Next up was a freebie thanks to my mom...she brought this little beauty home for me...thanks mom I love it!!
Isn't this little bench so sweet...
I moved it in a few different spots but I love the way it looks tucked under my sofa table. 
   That's all for today...gotta go and finish up a painting project that I started!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

There were so many amazing links last week
 that I had a hard time narrowing it down to just a few features. 
But here goes...



Looking like it came out of a magazine layout,
this French Country Mantel from Pamela
 at From My Front Porch to Yours has the perfect balance.





I've oogled this Ticking Stripe Ottoman Redo 
from Cindy at Beaux Reves, all week!



I'm lovin' this wonderful plate display
 from Shelia from Note Songs;




Rustic and Refined Grain Sack Chair from Susan at Simply Stone Creek,
 shows a beautiful alternative to white or gray paint
 with this wonderful deep, rich, black accent.



I'm ready for an amazing Spring Wreath DIY  
from Ramon at Row House Blog.



And Amy from Ms.Toody Goo Shoes 
gave us a yummy and good for you too, snack:

 Hi there friends TGIF!!
Many thanks to all of you who linked up at our first "Share Your Style" party you can still link up to it here
you made it a great success!
 Hope to see you there again next Wednesday!
~~~
Another unframed canvas spoke to me and now it has a home in our family room.

 I think it's such a pretty scene...and I love it's worn edges.

 I added one of my roe antlers above it...it finished off this spot! 
This space has another new piece...it came home with me that same day...here's a peek.
 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a great weekend and stay warm!!
