Sweet Chair

I've been a bad blogger lately, but I think I have good reason, right? It's amazing how one tiny little fig-sized unborn person can just wreak havoc on a person's body. I'm sure most of you know exactly what I'm talking about.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining (ok, I'm totally complaining), but I'm typically a high-energy person who does a million things a day and right now, it's just not possible!

So I guess I have to lower my standards for myself a bit and just relax. Easy to say - hard for me to do.

Despite how yucky I'm feeling, I do feel incredibly blessed to have this little person growing inside me. It's completely amazing how God designed this whole "pregnancy" thing. Completely amazing.

Anywaaaay, moving right along...

I picked up this wooden ladderback chair from the thrift store last week. I just couldn't resist the rattan seat, and it was in really good shape. So, you know me, I snatched it up! Check it out in all it's "brown-ness"!

Gave it a couple good coats of white paint and distressed the edges a bit.

I painted the "cafe" wording on the back using acrylic craft paint. I printed the wording from the computer, then traced it onto the chair with carbon paper.

It's going into the French Farmhouse, so let me know if you want it!


  1. Love it! Don't feel bad. You update more than me and I'm not pregnant. My third child keeps me busy all day long and then I'm too tired at night to do anything. Hang in there!

  2. that is SO PRETTY! love the distressed look. it`s funny we used to freak, that the paint might rub off- meaning a bad paint job... and now when i paint, if i don`t sand off a bunch it doesn`t look "finished". :)

  3. I love the chair and what you did with it! ADORABLE!


I love hearing from you! Thanks for your comments! ~Aimee
