Cheap Thrones

I rarely find anything cool at garage/moving/estate sales. And I think that's largely because I don't go to them often enough to come back with a trove of treasures. However, on my way home from errands on Saturday, this chair called out to me from a moving sale display. Actually, I'm not sure I should call it a chair and rather, a throne: It honestly stands higher than the top of my chest! I think it's pretty dang cool. However, I know it needs some work- paint chipping on its stems and all that jazz. And I know in my heart I won't mess with it until we move into a new place later this summer BUT I'm excited about the options moving forward. 

For now, it's just fun to sit that high.

If you have any ideas about redoing the legs, feel free to let me know :)

Gah! That is definitely reminiscent of a throne - I love how attention-commanding it is!

That antique high-chair a.k.a. throne looks like it's in excellent condition. Who knows, maybe some day a baby girl princess will have the pleasure of sitting in it at a breakfast or dinner table - or it would be nice for getting a more lofty qeen's-eye view out a window - or of your subjects - or for any other exiting options you think or have thought of.

I do love this chair. Shabby Chic comes to mind.
