Here is a few pics of the curb chair I found.  It has been sanded, primed and painted.  I reupolstered it with this pretty floral fabric.  Looks like a brand new chair.  Don't you just love it when you can turn something ugly into something pretty.  This will look so nice in someone's sun room or covered patio.  This is how it looked when I found it perched on top of a bunch of limbs on the curb.  But she was sturdy and just needed some love.  The night stand in the back is the one I finished a few blogs back.  It was a curb find too.  I just love it when people put their things on the curb.  Especially if I come by and find them.  This is a little jewel that I found at a yard sale yesterday.  I love wicker!!  This one is not old, but it has some good lines on it and the cushion is pretty.  And I don't have to work on it.  
We have a warm day today, its very windy, but tomorrow it is suppose to be cold.  No yard sales this weekend.  I will be glad when the cold weather stays in Canada or where ever it comes from.  We are suppose to be in spring tomorrow, not winter.
Hope all of you have a great weekend!!!!
Hugs, Pat
