This week I am guilty of CHAIR LUST
I just happened to glance into the inviting window of a local Charity shop during my lunch break and I beheld a thing of great beauty.
Well strictly speaking at present it looks awful...
but believe me when I say this object of my lust is an ugly duckling waiting to be a beautiful swan...
This thing is a CHAIR
I think it is a 1920s chair
PLEASE INDULGE ME AND IMAGINE HOW THIS CHAIR COULD BE TRANSFORMED......
Imagine the CHAIR dressed in a natty navy and cream stripe, with navy piping and with this as a trim:
stripes...... and continuing on the navy theme......

How would it be if I dressed the CHAIR in one of the following:
this one with yellow buttons and piping or purple buttons and piping
keep it simple with self-piping and buttons; very sweet
or go dotty with spotty fabric in any colour
would this work? - yes I think so with cool cream buttons and piping
and what about the Midas touch -
or dare to keep it plain with conrasting black piping and buttons -
hmmm I think that may be my favourite
Unfortunately this story of CHAIR LUST does not have a happy ending
for the moment I caught sight of the CHAIR I also
caught sight of the said CHAIR 's SOLD SIGN
how I wept
