Pretty in Pink.... not so much

So a friend posted this on her fb the other day (it wasn't hers just something she found on fb) and I fell in love with it instantly!!! I decided I had to have one, so today I went to garage sales and our Goodwill in search of a chair and wa~la I found one.  The style is a little different but I think I can make it work.

Isn't this terrible? I can't imagine having it in my house, but under that fabric is some goodness.  I can't wait to get started.  I went and picked up some chicken wire like stuff and I already have some burlap.  I'll post it when I get it done.  Unfortunately rain is predicted here so I don't know if I am going to get to it this weekend.
That is right another happy customer, can you believe I got this for 14.99, or that I paid 14.99 for it.  It has good bones and will look like a million bucks when I get thru.  At least that is what I told myself! ha It was a great day of buying second hand stuff.  I got this table, I can't find a thing wrong with it not even a scratch.

When I first saw it,  I thought I have no idea where I could put this, but it was only 25.00 and it was in such good shape and then I thought I could use it in my bedroom as a night stand, the one I have is dinky. So I loaded it up and brought it home.

Here it is all fixed up, still not sure if I am done arranging it.  Don't pay attention to the cords, I still need to fix those. It is a perfect fit and matches my furniture really well. This blue color is actually showing up much more baby blue than it is in the room, it looks more like a smoky blue when you are actually in there.  Anyway I have all kinds of great finds that I plan to show at a later date.  Tomorrow I am going to a HUGE flea market called First Monday Trade Days in Canton.  I hope to find some great finds there!
