Met Monday

I'm posting a little early for my first Met Monday! Met Monday is a party hosted by Between Naps on the Porch each Monday. You have to check it out!!!

I was rearranging my family room last weekend, and thought we could use a little more seating. I jumped onto Craigs List, and found a very generic oak rocking chair for $30! I didn't take a picture of it before I painted it. Bummer!

I whipped out my black satin spray paint, and transformed the chair into what you see above. I know what you are thinking, how can I consider this a metamorphasis when I didn't take a before picture.

It's true, I neglected to do that, but this is a picture of the space before I prettied it up!

This is what the space looks like now! Trust me, that chair looks sooo much better black! That little black table was a Christmas Tree Shop find a few years ago. I was no longer using it, so George dragged it out of the shed for me.

Some of you who have visited me a few days ago will recognize those 2 platters on the wall. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can find info about it here.

I'm really happy with the metamorphasis of this space! Josie loves to sit here and read, too! Bonus!!!

  9. Looks great! CTS still has that table - I was actually just looking at it last weekend. LOVE the black chair. I am thinking my mother-in-law would kill me if I did that to the one she gave me for the nursery though....

  19. Lovely little nook you created! I love how black looks and did do my dinette black for a year. I have so many little messy fingers around here though and the black showed every print, soooo I switched to country blue for this past year. I may have to go with Robins egg blue this fall!
