seagrass side table and garden wedding chair

Seagrass Side Table

I was at the Goodwill (g-dub) and this cute little table caught my eye. Well, the color wasn't that cute, but I could see way past that and what I was going to do with it. I checked it all over making sure it was not going to fall apart on me. I quickly threw it into my cart and paid a meager $7.99 for Georginna, who was looking more like a George at that point. Why do I name my furniture pieces? I have no idea! I gave Georginna a complete makeover! 

Georginna is now a beautiful seagrass side table in our master bedroom. Way to go Georginna! 

Garden Wedding Chair

Next up is Polly! Polly was looking putrid. I can't even show you what the cover looked like on the seat! There is actual print on the bottom of the chair that reads recovered in 1975! You're not kidding! G-R-O-S-S! But, she was $4.99 at the G-dub, so I took the cover off, put in new batting, reupholstered it with $1.99 fabric, sanded, primed and painted. Polly is now sitting proud! 


  1. Good eye! They both look great, but Georginna is especially pretty with her new makeover.

  2. What an unusual table and I love it.

    Thanks again for linking up...can't wait to see what you link up next week!

  7. I adore the table!!! You've done such a brilliant job on both the pieces, they would cost a fortune in some of the upmarket boutiques here! Looking forward to see your future blog posts :o) Scarlett x
