...and maybe a hundred more as well.....lalalala.
Seriously at my house theres no shortage of places to 'Park Ya Backside'.If you're a long time follower of my blog, this will not come as a shock to you, you all know my weakness' and obsessions, LOL.
Im a chair-a-holic and proud of it. Hey i may even make a T.Shirt.
Yep it has a certain ring to it....dont you think.

So anyroad, i have this chair on my front porch....my dad has been 'parking his butt on it' a fair bit, so i havent bothered to fix her up at all because i knew she'd just get all blah looking again. BUT dad moved out last week (yes, yay we found him a cute lil place of his own)so guess what i did?
"Heres ya bags dad, see ya, yep it's been great...bye, dont let the door hit ya on the way out"...THEN i grabbed that poor ole chair, took her out the back to the garage and let rip with the paint!

Now theres good Shabby and theres bad Shabby and this ole girl was waaaaay past good Shabby if you ask me.

Now, im thinking i need some more colour on my lil' porch so guess what? I totally bypassed the pink paint, yes, thats right, you read right, i DID NOT, i repeat DID NOT paint her pink. Ok get a hold of yourself, it's not the end of the world. LOL.

Look what i DID do though....(and there is pink roses at least)

"If you cant say anything nice....come sit by me"

So despite the lack of my usual 'pinkness' i kinda like her in her new sunny spot on my porch.

Now im off to park my backside.

Till next time,

love and pink kisses,
Shann xxxx

What a beautiful redo! You should share this with Jen at Sanctuary Arts At Home! She has a thing every thursday for revamping stuff like old furniture! This would be perfect for that. You just link to her thing on it! Oh, I wish I had the link right now....just google "sanctuary arts at home" and you'll find her blog if you're interested.

Eeeeks girls, sorry, need to clarify that it's fabric on the chair seat, not handpainted.
Thanks for your sweet compliments.

What a gorgeous chair that has become, a great addition to your porch.
Had not visited your blog before, so I took a quick look at the rest of it, it is great.
I simply adore Sam's Easter bonnet, such fun and I love the little details on it!

She's beautiful! I love purples and lavenders. And I'll bet it's all the more gorgeous in combination with your other porch pinks.
