Chicken Chair

Chicken chair you ask? What is that? A comfy spot for my fowl feathered friends to roost, so to speak? 


A chicken chair is a thrift store chair, repainted and recovered in a fun chicken chair fabric sample.

I bought a pair of these chairs several years ago at the local thrift store.  One I recovered and resold right away. The other has been hanging around... in a corner, at the foot of my bed, in the basement.

So, while my coffee was brewing this morning (and wow, did I ever brew a strong pot this morning!), I painted the chair.  I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Linen, which is a limited color, part of the Michael Penney collection. CLICK HERE for a chance to win $150 in paint and products from Fusion Mineral paint.

And then as my eggs were poaching (as in, while my breakfast was cooking), I recovered the seat with this chicken chair fabric sample I picked up from a garage sale. It was a tight fit, but worked.

And after the LARGE cup of strong Joe, I put the chair seat back on.

Quick and easy and little bit of whimsy!
