Old Box and Chippy Chair



Last week, we went to visit my sister at her lake cabin which is a couple hours from us.
She took my Mom and I to a few shops in the little town of Carrollton, Ohio.
It's always so fun to check out new shops and most of the prices were really good.


I found this old box for only $4.00!


I also bought this little blue chair for $20.00.


I love that it has layers of paint ~ all chippy and weathered.
I did clean it up a bit since I took these pictures ~ it was a little dirty.


So I've been having fun playing around with my "new" finds.
Like many of you, I love the look of something pretty and feminine,
like these hydrangeas, placed in something old and rustic.


Isn't it fun to explore little towns and cute little shops?

~ one of my favorite things to do ~

 HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
