About Me

My photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

Sit Down Awhile

   Chairs! What do we love in a good chair? Comfort? Color? Design? Purpose? Chairs bring versatility to a room. They are the piece that can add the pop of needed color or the element of hominess, sophistication or  a rustic feel. One Kings Lane came up with a Guide to Modern chairs. First, we love all their goods,but they have a really beautiful selection of chairs. I made a Pinterest board where you can check out some of my favorite chairs from One Kings Lane, called  Cool Chairs . Here is their link to their Guide for Modern Chairs, A Complete Guide to Modern Chairs

I love these chairs!I want to do an entire room around these chairs!

 I just finished up an interior design job and one of my favorite elements in the room was this chair. We don't do everything country, farmhouse, or rustic at A Little Country House. I have clients who like a lil modern mixed in, or a more eclectic look. This chair I loved because of the beautiful, pumpkin colored linen, but also the clean lines that gave a nod to the 60's or 70's. Be bold, mix decades, it is ok! I think this chair is the finishing umph to this room.

I also like to re-purpose a chair in design. I have an outdoor wicker chair that we love as a dining chair. I sprayed it with a metallic spray it a whole new look and dimension.

Sprayed in a dark, oil rub bronze, much more hip

comfy seating for dining

or re-purpose a chair as a shelf in another spot

this looks great holding towels in a bathroom
  Do you have a chair that is re-purposed into something else? Do you have a chair that you really splurged on, because the design was so beautiful? Share with us! Don't forget to checkout One Kings Lane!
