A place for books and sunshine

I have recently discovered estate sales. I know. Recently? Yes. But I've been out of the country for 3 years, and one tends to lose touch with American life. So here I am now, obsessed with walking through someone else's house searching through their lifetime collection of things. Love it. Most recently I found a very broken chair. There were actually two of them and the color spoke to me. However, one of them only had three legs. No good. So I took the good one for $3.00 and had just the place for it. Yes, I painted over it, but that fabulous, sunny yellow is still peeking through. 


Living its new life. 
I think I may distress it a little more and let that sunshine really come through.

This post couldn't have been more timely for me. We have a few dining chairs... mostly castoffs from others, but I love the mismatched look... that have crossed over from functional to junk. Yesterday when we moved a chair, the back came off, with a bad break. No more gluing this one. I never thought to turn it into a what-not table. Thanks for the inspiration!
