Sometime last year I found this discarded bamboo chair and decided we 'needed' it. It was unpainted and Dave had some leftover orange paint which he was using on anything that didn't move, and so it got painted orange, and lived mostly on the porch or in the garage. It had a seat cushion with it and while the chair sat in the rain often the chair cushion managed not to get ruined. Faded, but not ruined. Still, the chair never made it to prime time in the house until NOW. We decided that Dave's new room will be white, gray, black and red, and so out came the red spray paint.
It looked so gorgeous that I immediately volunteered to make a new cushion out of this sparkly iridescent dotted black decorator cotton (vintage, I've had it for over 15 years). It turned out great and now the King will have his throne.
And then I heard from our contractor that the flooring will be laid (partially, I assume) tomorrow (Monday) and now we are scrambling to get furniture moved and tiles ripped up. At last the fun begins!
