Nifty Thrifty Tuesday!

Today I'm linking up with Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

I have had this old adirondack double chair for years but it was in a stained wood that had faded over the years, I decided to paint it white, as it was starting to show some wear from the weather. I liked how it turned out and its a lovely spot to sit and ponder, especially with a quilt (which I made out of my stash) and good magazine!



Now all I need is someone to clean the house and make me a cuppa ! Ha!

the fruit from our trees, well only a few! Need to make some lemon pie with them, now that would be a nice morning tea  to go with the cuppa  :)

The photos below were from Hyde Park London, so beautiful, one of my most fav places :)



Have a great day everyone!

Love your "new" chair and you're right it looks like a good place for a cuppa and a book.
Cheers

I love the look of adirondack chairs - are they comfortable?

When I was in England in 1983, Hyde Park was brown -- London was in a drought and a heat wave!

Looks so relaxing and I love your quilt - good job I don't have one of those chairs or one of those quilts or nothing would get done at all! Lovely photos of Hyde Park - not quite like that just now methinks though.

Hmmm... you've given me some inspiration, thank you :-) I have two steamer chairs that are looking a bit worse for wear after two winters outdoors - they'd look lovely painted with a beautiful quilt thrown over. Think I will add that to my Spring project list for next year!
Love your rejuvenated chair AND your pretty quilt,
xx

Hehe, sometimes nothing does get done here! and I guess all the flowers have gone now, but it was so pretty when we were there in summer!
