This Old Chippy Chair

I happened upon my first garage sale of the season last week and found this neat little chair for $5.00! I couldn't pass it up, as I saw too much potential. Better yet, no painting or sanding was required to get the rustic, shabby chic look I like!

Just the day before, I had been cleaning out a cabinet and found the rusty, vintage scale. For the life of me, I don't know why I've been storing  the scale. I mean what was I thinking? I decided to use a couple of old encyclopedia books to elevate the scale. After all, my husband insist we keep the books, so I should use them to decorate with! Right?

I decided to cut a few fresh jonquils from the yard and placed them in a fruit jar with a burlap tie. The jonquils have just about all bloomed in the yard and I was glad to enjoy the flowers indoors for a few days longer. A couple of candles completed the arrangement.
I love the shabby chic style chair and am glad I stopped by that garage sale.
 Tomorrow I'll share where the chippy chair is sitting and the bigger picture! Here's a hint...
Any guesses what room I'm redoing?
