Little Miss Muffet's chair.......

For awhile now I've been looking for a comfy chair for my studio....I have nowhere to sit in there. Now granted, when I'm working in there I rarely feel the need to sit, however I have thought how nice it would be to have a comfy chair to curl up in to read my favorite mags.
So bff Melanie calls one day, excitement in her voice saying, "I found you the perfect chair for your studio!".
Of course I was intrigued, so had her describe it etc. She knew it had to be fairly small because I have so much crammed into my studio that I just didn't have room for something bigish.
So we met in Salem, to do some thrifting, and when I pulled into the parking lot, she had the Miss Muffet chair up on the roof of her car, just so I wouldn't miss her, I guess!!! It looked hilarious, and I was so mad I forgot my camera that day. This chair used to have dark wood, and I wasn't sure I even liked it, but I brought it home, painted it, re-foofed the cushions after washing and repairing some of the fabric, and it looks just like a Miss Muffet chair, don't you think? And how about that fabric? It's the most beautiful barkcloth I've ever seen!!!! Wish I had bolts and bolts of it, don't you?
So after all the work I've put in, my thought is to sell this beauty at the Coburg show this Fall, if Melanie doesn't want it, that is :). The reason is, that the very spot where this chair is sitting is going to be the future home of my antique dress form, which I don't have yet, but look for every single day like a madwoman. BTW, my favorite brand is the Borchert-Hall forms, of course, pretty spendy usually......anyone have any leads for me? I'd sure love you for it......
Back on Monday with a new post, have a great weekend!
