a date.






i've got a date w/ this guy and a can of spray paint this weekend.  i found him at goodwill almost two and a half yrs ago for $3.99.  he's been living in the storage unit (i bet he's glad to be out).....he finally has a home- the corner of our front porch/ breeze way.  i hope he will be happy...i can't wait to finally swing in him!!

Goodwill? Ack!! I've been searching for one forever for my daughter (but c'mon - I'd love it too). Of course I didn't get the one on craigslist a while ago and i'm kicking myself. Can't wait to see it finished!

I have the same chair (thank you, Craigslist!) waiting to be put up on my porch and have been debating whether to keep it natural or paint it black... good luck! I'm so excited to enjoy ours this summer.

My girls have one of those in their room! I found mine of craigslist--at $50, not a STEAL like yours, but still decent. Debated painting, but ended up leaving it natural and then making little cushions. The girls love it!

Stellar find, can't beat that one. Not in your daughter's room though? Thought she would love it!

What a steal Shannon! So jealous! I sell one similar on my blog: http://loft32.blogspot.com/p/marketplace.html

Just in case your readers can't find one as nice at their local Goodwill!

Can't wait to see the finished project!
