I was not wrong to be worried. Glances and comments of, "how pretty" and "how much" and "what a great deal", followed me throughout the store. $25.91 may be a huge amount for some thrift store purchases, but not this one.
A little gaudy perhaps in its current state, but you know me and the fact that spray paint seems to fix everything.
Brought it home and looked it over. Days went by and my thoughts were churning. What color to spray paint it? There are many colors that would look fabulous. Cotton Candy Pink, but no, my daughter didn't need a chandy in her room. Black---hmmm. Safe and good choice. Red-well yeah, but it wouldn't work in my house. Limeade Green?? Oh so fabulous, but also wouldn't work. I also was considering another option. It might not get hung in my house. My photography business came to mind. Strange thoughts seemed to come to me, usually in the middle of the night. I asked my hubby if my idea would work. He said yes.
Well with this information and these thoughts in my head I decided on another safe color for now; Dover White--not bright white, but not too creamy.
The color is subject to change. Now to my idea. You see, I had this idea in mind.
A maternity session for my sister-in-law. Her hubby is our youngest brother. We had so much fun. Well, at least Meg and I did. My brother, not so much. ; )
What do you think?
Oh, and the chair was a thrift find too. It is suppose to be my daughter's desk chair, but it goes with us for photos more often than not.
Off to clean, cook supper and do the mommy thing.
Edited to add:
