Thrifty Love {link party #36}

Hey friends, welcome back for this weeks Thrifty Love! Real quick, I have a giveaway going on through Sunday. Two winners will each get 2 Pretty Rose Necklaces. One for yourself and one for a friend! Come enter.

So check out what I picked up this week! Can you say awesome?! I have been wanting a vintage wooden office chair, and have passed up many because of condition. But this one only has a few minor issues. Mostly in that wicker seating area which I plan on doing away with anyway.

I would kind of like to see it white but cringe at the idea of painting over nice wood. Yucky wood or plywood fine, nice wood no! At the same time I dislike it as is so I'm thinking a colored wood stain. Have you seen the many colors now available? Or maybe a whitewash so you can still see the wood grain. And though I am kinda diggin' that two tone seat I am thinking that whole area from the white line forward will be cushy upholstery cause I need some cushy for my tushy lol!

 
So what color would you do it? Any thoughts? I'd love to hear them. Oh and guess how much? $6.75 out the door on sale day! Love sale day!

Last weeks features!

And I'm loving this colorful collection form Kathryn's Curious Life.

Your chair is awesome! You're right, ours are very much alike but I must say, your two-tone seat is really cool. I hear what you're saying about painting over good wood. I'm feeling guilty about wanting mine white! I can't wait to see what you do to yours :)

That's a wonderful chair and what a great price! The wood is beautiful, would love to see how you change the seat.

Thanks for hosting your party, I'm joining in. Pam

Great chair! I understand about not painting wood, yet I saw the coolest house tour on Apartment Therapy yesterday with similar chairs painted white, and they were amazing. It's here if you want to check it out: http://bit.ly/OAzwM4. ~heather

Loving the desk chair. I probably wouldn't paint it at all. I still love the look of vintage wood and this looks great. However, I admit that I have loved painted would sometimes when I don't think I would. I haven't been much help.

Oops "didn't" think I would. Bad grammar is just bad. HA!
Me again

That chair is a real keeper. I have not seen one like that in years.

The wood on your beautiful chair is much too nice to paint. Paint would destroy such a wonderful piece.
