One Old, Ugly Chair

>> Tuesday, November 16, 2010


I spied her last Thursday at the consignment shop. The tag pinned to her cushion actually said that. "One Old, Ugly Chair". Poor thing.
And how could anyone call such a yummy shade of turquoise "ugly"?! At $44, she was a bit out of my price range, but the notation on the side of the tag indicated that the price would drop to $36 on Sunday. I crossed my fingers, said a little prayer and left her in the care of the shop keepers for the weekend.
Apparently the applied stigma worked because when I arrived shortly after the store opened on Sunday, she was still sitting there, waiting for me.
I think she's beautiful.

Head over and visit The Colorado Lady for more vintage goodies this Thursday!

Linking up to Brambleberry Cottage for Time Travel Thursday. Pop on over to check out all the beautiful treasures!

I agree, I love the chair. It looks like it's in great condition, too. I think you got a really good deal! Peace, Stephanie

She's GORGEOUS! What a steal! I think she was tagged ugly by fate so you could snag her, and she's be in a home where she'd be appreciated. ;)

I am glad you were able to get this chair. It is very nice and the wood work on it is very pretty.

Your chair is very nice, the wood accents are so pretty. I'd have loved to have this too. Happy VTT!

I love that chair. I think its in awesome condition for the age, and I could totally picture myself curled up in it with a seriously loud lime green blanket knitting!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As long as you like it, that's all that matters.

P.S. I think it's pretty too.

Lucky you, that chair has style and I love it too. However the color doesn't match a thing in my home. Lucky you. I really do love the detail on that chair. Enjoy your lovely find. a good bargain too.
Hugs, Jeanne

OH my gosh! We used to have a couch made with green fabric just like that! And I think my Grandma did too. OH what wonderful memories! Your turquoise chair is great!!!

Love the chair! It has good lines and the fabric color is so fun.

I think she's beautiful, too, Tara! Fortunate for you, beauty was only in your eye as the beholder, at that store. ;)

Thanks for linking to my party. I look forward to seeing what you link up each week.
