Here is my chair so far!
You can see that I sanded a bunch off of the high points of the scrolls and hen even on the edges and legs. I am collaging the back there and will be adding a few other things yet......I want to add some buttons and threads....the collage contains some cheesecloth,vintage ledger papers and fabric(flowers) from the chair seat that I recovered as well. Now that is a rummage sale find right? I am having fun with this little project and think it will be a fun altered piece of furniture. :0) Have a great week everyone. Hugs,Patti

Ooooh Patti, this chair is way too cool! Talk about finding a diamond in the rough! I would never have thought to alter a "standard" size chair - you are so clever!
Thanks for asking about George and Mom - both are hangin' in there.
Love,
Barb
