Desk Chair

I walked in to Goodwill, strolled down the far left side. My usual route, first I check out the wall of dishes, glassware, and then I take a right turn and scan the furniture.  I see her sitting there. No one around, run, walk fast over to her. My mind racing, I head back up front to get a shopping cart. All the time panicked that I won’t make it back before someone scoops her up.


$12.99, but I really don’t need a desk chair. I just bought one at Office Max, for my kitchen desk. I put her my cart anyway. I walked around thinking about the ones that I saw in Pottery Barn for $269-$399:

Oh what the heck, I’m getting her.

I used the Annie Sloan Old White Chalk paint and distressed her a little:

She functions perfectly, and she’s all freshened up with the white paint. I’m so glad I was a big spender and rescued this $12.99 beauty! What do you think about the little lady now?

    1. You crack me up…you shop GW the same way I do: with a favorite route (mine is the same too, glassware then furniture) and then panic when I find something I like! LOL! I honestly think sometimes I have a big thought-bubble over my head proclaiming my love for something I see and everyone else is then in on my secret! 😀 What’s the most interesting about this particular post is that I also found a great desk chair similar to yours a few months ago. $9.99 and it totally reminded me of a catalog splurge as well. I’ll hafta figure out what I want to do with it finish-wise and post about it. 🙂
      Anyway, great find and I love the paint job…it’s the perfect creamy white!

    2. Totally charming!! I love how she came out- perfectly charming in her coat of paint! I host a decorating party on the weekends at my blog if you would like to come share sometime!:)

    3. That chair is adorable. I am looking at my stained oak chair with the same top but straight spindled legs. Hmmmmm. Might be time for a re-do. Truly enjoy all your projects. Very inspirational.

    4. Debbie, she looks great!! I am addicted to Goodwill and am always on the look out for special things…my latest is a chair too…we were donating our things left over from our yard sale and there was a lady in front of us doing the same….she had a chair and I asked her if I could have it . …she said yes. I am in the process of creating me “Girl Room” so the chair will look great in there once I get it painted….thanks for inspiring me…:-)


    5. WOW… she looks great. What a great makeover, always impressed with your creations. Thinking Katie needs a cute chair in the near future for a desk to do all her big girl homework … 🙂
