Build Me Up Buttercup

I picked up this sweet little chair this weekend at a HUGE garage sale. I found a few other little treasures too, but this one was calling my name this afternoon when I looked around my workspace and realized I needed something fun and happy to get me out of one of those Monday bleary feelings.

I couple of coats of a light, airy yellow, some distressing, some dark wax and. . . thank you little Buttercup Baby Chair. You built me up and you didn't let me down at all!

A happy chippy finish.

Cute curves.

Pretty legs and don't you love the crossbar on the bottom?  I love the little things like this that make pieces of furniture special.

I could see her sitting in the corner of a kitchen where your best friend might sit and chat while you are baking.  After you pull that hot bread out of the oven this little chair is happy to hold your apron for you while you and your girl friend have a fat slice w/ honey butter.

Or maybe she would look pretty in a front entry, there to greet you, offering you a nice place to take off your shoes at the end of a long day.

I could even see her on a dreamy enclosed porch, waiting for a neighbor to drop by to share some lemonade with.

  5. Very nice chair... your distressing looks very natural!

  6. Love it, it looks like it's been in a farmhouse kitchen for decades. Like it's been used over & over as a stepstool for kids to help with the cooking. So cute! I love that shade of yellow.
