A few months ago (nearly a year, to be exact...) I stumbled over the most ugly rocking chair you can imagine in an antique/opshop in my street. I saw this guy and somehow liked it, but couldn´t explain myself why. It had the grosest fabric, but I liked the shape. (Unfortunately I forgot to take a before picture, but do you see the fabric???)
After I passed the shop and the chair a few times I understood why I liked it: It had the shape of a Mid Century Chair and just had been mislead because of the terrible fabric. Somebody must have made this huge mistake in the past to cover the chair with this. Somehow I imagine an old sweet couple, this was her chair, as I found a crochet hook and a hair needle in it later.
Well back to the week I had found this chair. It was a time where my money situation wasn´t that good and when I asked the seller how much he wanted I was shocked. Unfortunately he knew about it being Mid Mod allthough I tried as much as I could to missguide him. I said what??? You want so much for this ugly chair? No way! And left the shop. But I came back every day, and asked him: How much is the chair today? Well after a few days it was half the price from the beginning, still a lot, but I couldn´t resist. Then it was mine.
And you know what? It was finished in two days. This was my easter project. And here it is and i love it so much!!! I can´t wait to sit in it, watch little holes in the air, drink a coffee or read a nice book in it.
I love how my good folks quilt matches the colours.
What did you do in your free time?
Did you have an easter project? Did you meet with family and friends? Did you enjoy your time?
And have you seen the beauty in something really ugly recently?
