Welcome to this months edition of The DIY Girls Themed Furniture Make Over Day. Today is a day I wait to see the creative freedom these ladies honor us with sharing their talents. During this time we honor those who have gone before us. Darlin' my blog title comes from believing our live is founded on the ones who have worked, struggled and found joy in their dreams before us.
Get ready for a salute to the USA. Our theme is Red, White & Blue. I am calling this little chair Lakeside because instead of curbside shopping I found her walking Cricket at the lake. Here is her before picture.
Lakeside is a bit beat up but salvageable. A new seat where her canning wore out. Covered with ticking fabric in shades of red and white. Her seat back is painted with a white chalky paint.
This discarded lakeside rescue has been restored to her sparkling glory. There will be many shoes tied, stories read, and meals enjoyed in this seat for years to come.
Since it is time to get to the lake and enjoy the first weekend of summer. I styled the chair with a suitcase, straw hat and amber waves of grain. I am loving the USA theme.
Doesn't the red & white stripes look so clean and crisp? It is also a perfect piece to decorate with all year round. Don't be surprised if you see Lakeside in future posts.
This afternoon our area had some fierce thunderstorms. The kind where is it dark outside when the sun is still up. I had the new rain booties ready as props before I took the tags off. This is one of my favorite pictures. I am smiling imagining splashing in the puddles on a soft rainy day.
Since I was writing about summer days, this weekend is a great time to relax and read all of the talent the girls have gathered for you this month.
