Metamorphosis Monday - Adirondack Chairs that I love

Last year while vacationing in Missouri at Lake of the Ozarks, we say Adirondacks everywhere. Not for me, I thought, they don't look comfortable. Well, boy was I wrong! I fell in love with the one below - but not to the tune of $350.00. I'm not saying it wasn't worth it. They were hand painted, and had 3 coats of paint, plus a sealer on them. I'm sure there was a lot of work that went into them. I knew I wanted one "someday".

Then we bought a new Lake house, and I knew I had to have my OWN Adirondacks. They were $59.95 each at Ace - and the footstool that went with them - $29.95. Ouch! But okay. The day before I was going to go get some, I got a flier from Ace. OMG! They are $29.95 and $9.95. I went in right away, and they only had one in the box.....

Oh boy, DH is so happy with me right now............................................

The only other one they had was already put together!!YeHaw!

This the special mixture the made for primer. Totally cute!

I thought about leaving them pink, for a little bit, but then painted them red. I love the way you can have your paint match exactly what you want these days. Just a little scan, and badum bump! It works! The photo above doesn't even look red, does it, hmmmmm......

They are pretty happy in their new home. My DH and I sat down and enjoyed them after taking the photos.

Thanks so much for stopping by , I had to show my new favorite photo again, with the chairs. Please join me as I go over to Susan's.

My new favorite photo

I just love to take pictures, and this is my newest FAVORITE! I'm going to have it printed in 32" x 50" to hang above the couch at our lake house. Since it's taken in the yard - I thought that would be fun!

So much to do - so little time! Joining Vintage Thingie Thursday!

We have been so busy between home and our new lake home - then throw in the fact that we haven't signed over the OLD lake home and it even gets more confusing! We love the new house though, and as well as the new location. It's so handy to just pull the boat up on the beach and run up to the house. I'm sharing a few photos, hope you enjoy! Here's the view from the living room. Those rosey drapes on the left are GONE now!

This is top of some of the kitchen cabinets - I have plans for this area, but haven't decided yet about paint vs. wall paper up here.

I used some antique ceiling tiles instead of a headboard for our bed. Thanks for stopping by - I'm still working on it, so come back again! Since I showed you the Ceiling tiles - guess I'll joining Vintage Thingie Thursday - what the heck!
