Chair Changes

Hello everyone!

First, I just want to say how sad I am watching the devastation on the news about the deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma.  I am sad for those that lost family members and their homes.  We get tornadoes here in Georgia, but not of that magnitude.  I can't even imagine how scary that must have been for everyone living there and the challenges they face to rebuild their lives.  Most devastating of all is hearing about the children missing in the school that was hit.  As a parent of a school age child, I can only imagine how upsetting that would be for the families with missing children. I hope they will be able to rebuild and go on in the future and hopefully with some strategies for a safer outcome.  I hear that many of the homes in Oklahoma don't have basements because of the rock underneath the land.  Also, that many of the schools and businesses don't have storm cellars because of the cost.  So tragic!!!!

Around here, we've been fortunate to have some relief from the rain that ruined our weekend.

I finally managed to clean up the wicker settee that I found and paint it black.


Now, I need to go shopping for a cushion.  I prefer something plain.  I saw some at Pier One in plain white.  That sounds good to me!  I also have a coupon with them.  Yay!

I moved a couple of chairs around inside my home too.  The chair that was in my master bedroom got moved into the sitting room.


And the chair that was in the sitting room, got moved into my bedroom.


(Ignore the cable from the TV.) My mom made the suggestion of putting the black chair in my bedroom since I  made it neutral.  It has an ottoman  that goes with it that I wasn't using in the sitting room.  Now it looks like a chaise!  


I added a white faux fur throw to it too.  

Hope all of you are doing well and are safe from these scary Spring storms rolling through the Midwest.

Thanks for stopping by!

The settee looks great! Some white cushions would be perfect on it. Don't you love it when you already have a coupon for something you need? :) Love the faux fur throw too.

Such sad news today. We are praying for all of those that were affected. Your black wicker looks great. I bought all white cushions for the black furniture out back. Love the way it looks!

The black chair looks great in your bedroom! It looks nice next to the dresser. What a cozy space to curl up and read a book!
Love the wicker settee too. The perfect spot for sippin' some lemonade this summer!

Your wicker settee looks great, Kelly! I love the shape and the color. A white cushion would look really pretty against the dark color.

The tornadoes are truly awful. I am praying. The wicker piece is fierce in black.

You sure didn't waste any time tackling the wicker love seat! It shows up better on your porch now that it's black. Love the changes inside, too!

Thoughts and prayers to all in Oklahoma…so especially sad to hear about the children. The settee looks like a million bucks in black, and the chair switch-aroo was a great move!

Linda said...

Good job on the settee!!! and on listening to your MOM!! I just KNEW you were a smart woman!!

Scribbler said...

Your wicker has the most wonderful shape! I looks fabulous in black on you porch, too.

These tornadoes are mind boggling. We had some in Alabama a couple years ago the likes of which had never been seen around here. Our house only has a crawl space, no basement, and it is truly frightening. we are thinking of putting Ina shelter.

Mom has great ideas, and I just want to sit on your front porch and drink some lemonade.
