I have two of these vintage chair frames. Hubby picked them up at an estate sale for a VERY reasonable price, because, as you can see, ya can't sit on them. They have a great sculptural feel, and chippy old paint.
At some point, I'll add a seat and back.
For now, one of them makes a nice frame for my eucalyptus wreath. I stuck one of my gesso birdies in it.
This says Christmas........doesn't it? LOL
I'm going to put something on, or in the seat opening. Not sure what yet. I see some of you are all done with your Christmas decor. I need to get moving. I'm about to start decorating my tree, and break out my Nativity set.
Formulating an idea for large angel wings. I'll let you know if it works out. Simple, but festive, is what I'm going for.

Awesome chair! Wish I had your knack for decorating! :-DReplyDelete
Your chair frame is a real beauty. I love its "bones" and the wreath is a perfect touch until you get a seat in it.ReplyDelete
I would have grabbed that chair too! Love the detail and all the chipping paint.I know you will come up with a great solution for the seat!ReplyDelete
Would those chair arms make wings? But what do I know? The wreath and chair combo are beautiful. xo, OliveReplyDelete
I love your chippy chair frame! Love the look of the wreath. It does symbolize Christmas really well.ReplyDelete
Great chippy chair, Rosemary!ReplyDelete
I would put that chair on display on a tabletop and call it a day!ReplyDelete
I love the simplicity of your wreath. I hope you don't mind me copying this idea.ReplyDelete
Always enjoy reading your blog -- such talent you possess!!! SallyReplyDelete
What a great chair frame. I can't wait to see how it looks with a seat!ReplyDelete
I don't know that I would put a seat or back in this beautiful frame. Love the lines. the chairs are art pieces especially with the adornments you added.ReplyDelete
Your chairs are fabulous, Rosemary. I have one similar with no seat. I set it next to our tree every year and put a large package across the empty seat and then I pile packages on it and under it, just leaving the beautiful carving to show. I just love the sculpting of the wood. Good luck with your decorating. I'm not done yet either.ReplyDelete
Those are great chairs, I love the chippy shabbiness, don't change a thing! Hummm, maybe some burlap seat cushions,...Fabulous!ReplyDelete
I really like the chair, looks just like something I would have bought at an auction or estate sale. I use to drag home chairs like that back before chippy, shabby was in style LOL
my family hated it LOL and still don't like what I buy LOL
they just don't get it , I wish I was closer to you I could sell you a lots of stuff cheap
Very pretty chippy--looks great with the wreath :)ReplyDelete
Your chair makes a great display for your wreath.ReplyDelete
Love those chippy white chairs and I'm sure when you are done with them they will be even more beautiful!ReplyDelete
Simplicity is my motto this year as well, but I' haven't even gotten my tree yet. I can't believe what people are posting with their whol house decorated already.....crazy!!!
Great chair, Rosemary...and that wreath is beautiful! I'd love to see what you have planned!ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see those angel wings!ReplyDelete
I'm in love with your vintage chairs. So pretty! Your photo with the glass bottle and blue ornaments is priceless!ReplyDelete
Great chairs, Rosemary! I can just see how fantastic they will look done. Might as well incorporate them while they wait for their makeover. I think adding the wreath is a nice idea.ReplyDelete
You sure have an eye for detail!!ReplyDelete
Those chairs will look amazing when transformed.
Rosemary your chair is a beauty and the wreath was the perfect touch! LOVE it!!ReplyDelete
You are such an inspiration. Love all that you do! You are so talented and creative. Have a nice restful holiday!
Awesome! I adore those chairs (I'm on a chair hunt)! I think a bucket filled with something would be great in the seat. Can't wait to see what you come up with!ReplyDelete
I love the chair, I would have grabbed it too. Beautiful wreath.ReplyDelete
What a gorgeous chair (frame)! I like it in its current state--the lack of a seat means that the chair would accommodate my bulging bottom without the dreaded "spillover" effect!ReplyDelete
My goodness, Rosemary, don't say that you "stuck" one of your adorable gesso birdies in your wreath! I prefer this version: "I ever-so-carefully and thoughtfully tucked one of my gesso birdies within the aromatic branches of my eucalyptus wreath."
There! Much better!: P xoxo
Wish my husband would bring stuff home like that...those are gorgeous and so chippy!ReplyDelete
Love the wreath and that beautifully shaped chair!ReplyDelete
What a great looking chippy chair. the wreath is cute on it.ReplyDelete
Well....I have no doubt that whatever creative, ingenious and brilliant idea you come up with for those sweet angel wings ~ it'll be just gorgeous, Rosemary! :)ReplyDelete
Your chair is fabulous! Perfect with the wreath hung on the back. You've trained your hubby well to pick out such great finds.ReplyDelete
Hubby has a great eye too ~ love it!ReplyDelete
The chair frame is a swoon for me. Love your magical touch. Happy Holidays sweet friend.
Wow!! Gorgeous. It looks great with all your recent decor too. Cheers.ReplyDelete
What a great pair of chairs! What a darlin' of a hubby to snag them for you!! And the wreath looks just delightful on it!! Love how you think, Rosemary!! Love that bird too!ReplyDelete
Thanks for partying at BWW!!
