Ice Cream Parlor Chair

This chair reminds me of an ice cream parlor.  It's my latest thrift store find.  $5 buckaroos!

It started out looking like this.   A little sad, a little dirty, and a little dated.

I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the wood seat. I wasn't in love with the color, so the effort to paint around it wasn't worth it.


So I painted the whole piece a very pale pink, then distressed and glazed it.  It looks white in all these pictures!

I had a little fun editing these pictures in Picasa.  I Love it, and love that it's fa-ree!!

It's been rainy and cold here in Utah.  I just can't get myself out in my damp garage, heavens knows I have a million neglected projects out there!  So a little inside project is what the doctor ordered today!

Here's wishing you warm weather to get your projects done!!


  1. This is really beautiful! Going through your blog has inspired me so much. I can't wait to move at the end of the summer so I can go crazy with my thrift store finds :)
    Thank you SO much!

  2. Really great transformation! I am really glad that I found your blog. Lots of great tips!

  3. I have been wanting to do a chair like this for Brooklyn's room & use it as a nightstand since she only has one & I would like a small chair in there. Let me know if you come across another little chair like that! ;)

  4. I finally had a decent day to get out and work. It was so nice to be in the sun for a little bit.

    I'm loving the chair. My BFF and I were just talking about how nice it is to just tackle a small one afternoon project.

  5. Hi! I love using chairs as side tables! I am so excited I found your blog today! I can't wait to go back and read your older post! I would be honored if you would stop by my blog and tell me what you think!



Everyone loves a comment! Thanks for taking the time to leave one!
