I'm Feeling Blue

Hello Readers,
In September I posted a photo of  this chair do you remember this?

I want to share with you the backstory on how I got it. I was driving to Lowe's and while in route I saw a sign for an estate sale and of course I perked right up.  I get an eerie feeling when I go to estate sales; these were someone belongings things they valued. As I looked around I spotted this chair it was marked $55!! The woman handling the sale mentioned to me that everything is now half price. It still wasn't a bargain as far as I was concerned, so I made my way to the door and then the woman said okay you can buy it for $5 :) Now that's a deal!! I have cleaned, painted , reupholstered the cushion and I even added nail head trim. I'm very pleased with this restyle and of course the chair needed a decorative pillow. Now let's take a look.

Much, much better! I love the matching cushion and pillow along with the nail head trim.
I found my inspiration here!
