little black chair...

Well yesterday found me under the weather, flat out on the couch all day.  I have not had one of those days in a long time.  Fever, aches and no energy.  I am feeling a bit better today and will have to go food shopping, my least favorite thing in the world to do.  I hope I have some energy left when I get back because I am in the middle of preparing for the Vintage Holiday Sale at The Wrentham Country Store.  I was trying to think of how to decorate my booth and in keeping with our theme this year have decided to make a good old fashioned paper chain out of vintage book pages.  If I start to go down hill again later, at least I should be able to relax on the couch and get started on that.  I must admit I saw the idea yesterday somewhere in blogland through my lazy eyes. 

This morning I thought I would share this sweet little chair I got at the shop a few weeks ago...
I have it in my downstairs bathroom right outside the shower.  I originally wanted a narrow, small table or tall stool but when I saw this I could not resist...

I love the rusty metal base...

The worn spindles...

I also love all the scratches on the seat, perhaps from a little one's buckles on their shoes as they squirmed in their seat...


I just think it is adorable...
And when I turned the chair around and saw this I knew it was meant to be...
Yellow paint!!  So for now this vintage little chair will nest in my downstairs yellow bathroom...

I am joining Debra over at Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday as well as The French Cupboard where Jill is hosting Vintage Black Friday!  I just wanted to thank everyone for their kind comments on my booth makeover ~ I can't wait to see it again tomorrow!!  I am glad you stopped by today and I hope you enjoy your weekend!!

I love this little black chair and
the history (even though we can
only imagine it) that comes with it. Very cute!

Love the chair and love the wonderful charm worn into it ..Don't you just love when you find a piece that fits another perfectly ..that yellow pain was definitely the clencher ..!!!

I had that happen a few months back bought a vintage desk in aqua paint ..whilst a had a chair on hold I bought to re-sell ..when I picked the chair up ..it had aqua paint peeking out from under the white paint and when I got it home they were a perfect match ..so guess where the chair is ..LOL !!!

It's fun when things come together so perfectly ..

Blessings..Sara

Hey Sandi, sorry you aren't feeling well. I don't get sick often either so when something hits you like that, it's usually a doozy. Your booth looks great! And that little black chair certainly is sweet! Take care and have a great weekend. Making a paper chain sounds like a relaxing way to spend your time that doesn't take a lot of thought and energy yet is productive. Hope you are feeling better very soon. Best wishes, Tammy

Hope you are feeling better by now. Your chair with the yellow paint is perfect for your bathroom...in a sense it had your name on it. I love it when that happens. Cute chair. I like to join these parties but I'm visiting out of state so Im just enjoying reading them. Thanks for sharing your find.

Hello Sandi - I have a little chair like it, which we used for arts and crafts in our basement. Yours looks perfect in that bathroom - just the right size for a small space. I am glad to find your blog as I am a neighbor in MA. Hope you are enjoying this glorious autumn weather and don't forget to fall back tonight!

I hope you feel better! I always get sick when the seasons start to change like they are. My cure is always popsicles, gatorade, and chicken soup :o) That little black chair is adorable too! Can't wait to see your Christmas stuff
