16 Mar, 2009

 

ive been looking at your chair again jacque and i like it the way it is, i could imagine it half hidden amongst the flowers in your wildlife area with a large sun hat hanging on it :)

16 Mar, 2009

 

Nice bit of recycling Jacque. It will great all restored. I particularly like the arms. Just the right size and shape to support a pint glass.

16 Mar, 2009

 

It's surprising what people will throw away .

16 Mar, 2009

 

Good thinking Toto - in my case I would say very handy arms for my wine glass, lol. I agree with YoungDD Jacque, would look lovely in your wildlife garden.

16 Mar, 2009

 

Brilliant idea Toto. We can always count on you to pin down the important issues!!! LOL. Great chair Jacque. It's going to look fantastic.

17 Mar, 2009

 

I like your idea Dee but sadly it really does need a paint up as it is a little rotten in some Places :/ lol Toto the Arms r Perfect for Standing Drinks on ;) lol What is it people say Hywel 1 mans Rubbish is another Man Treasure ! :) Hmmmmmm Think il paint it & move it about abit in Wildlife Area Dawn/Dee 2 see if itl fit in OK :) Watch this Space Gilli 4 transformation :)

17 Mar, 2009

 

Great idea..... the best things are for free...lol

17 Mar, 2009

 

Lucky you were there at the right time Jacque or it may have ended up as fire wood. What a shame that would've been, it's a nice old chair.

17 Mar, 2009

 

Love That Word Holly "FREE" :) I normaly have a chat to my neighbour PG if he/shes in garden :) i have to stand on My Plank Bench in Wildlife/Wildflower Area 2 do so as we cant see each other over the Fence, when i saw it had been moved i asked where he ws putting it & 2 my Surprise he no longer wanted it so i was Lucky :)

17 Mar, 2009

 

yes you were lucky.. it will make a great seat.....I love the freebies too.. when i first moved here, a friend gave me a load of plants to get started.. and now i cant stop planting lol.......

18 Mar, 2009

 

Too nice to throw away Jacque,good job you rescued it and it will look good in your garden...

19 Mar, 2009

 

Love your seat jackie you are so lucky and better being recyled:).

Have you decided on the colour.

20 Mar, 2009

 

I know that Addiction Well Holly lol , Thanx Tina i like it lots &cant wait2find the time to paint it up ,I dont know how long itl last as it does have Rot in Places Scotkat & il be painting it with Dark Brown Wood Persevre :) BTW My 3 Cats have all had a sit on it & seem to enjoy it lots :)

20 Mar, 2009

 

If it's got the cat's approval, you better put a cushion on it for them and place in a nice sunny position, otherwise I can see you being in trouble.

20 Mar, 2009

 

You're like me give it some paint it will look good never turn down a freebie.

20 Mar, 2009

 

The garden chair is funky Jacque, let's see another pic after you've painted it:-)

21 Mar, 2009

 

Loved the thumbnail of it even...lol...I would have grabbed it in a heart beat too...very gardeny....I like it even without the paint job you are planning.....

21 Mar, 2009

 

Lovely chair... deserves a Patina ;o)!!!!

21 Mar, 2009

 

Well done Jacque, that is a very nice chair.

21 Mar, 2009

 

I agree with Catfinch, i also like it without the paint job, or i would paint it in a watered down cream... with a leafy pattern/colour cushion on it ...Lovely..

21 Mar, 2009

 

Love the chair Jacque, it looks like something out of a fairytale. Look good in a wild area of the garden with a couple of fairies there.

22 Mar, 2009

 

Looking forward to seeing the end result.

22 Mar, 2009
