I am kicking off a new series today called "FRIDAY FINDS".  
Every Friday a different blogger will highlight her/his all time favorite find. 
You know how I love a good find!  
I am going to start the series off by showcasing my latest find.

This fantastic find caused a game of musical chairs to take place around here.
I'll elaborate on that next week.

I picked up this chair at the thrift store last week for $10!  
It was marked down from $20 and you know how I hate to leave a great find behind.  

I know, it's not exactly beautiful right now.  
But I fell in love with the interesting lines and the lovely legs. 

Imagine it looking something like this amazing chair that Lauren from Pure Style Home designed....

Isn't it gorgeous?
Ever since I first laid eyes on this chair, I can't seem to get the image out of my head.


Now I completely understand that Lauren's chair is a much, much more expensive piece of furniture than my $10 thrift store find, but I think would the right fabrics and a professional upholsterer,
my chair can be transformed into something fantastic. 
You may remember from this post, that I'm not quite qualified to upholster furniture. 
I definitely will not be attempting this makeover myself. 

  And don't worry, that ruffle will be the first thing to go.
What do you think, are you seeing my vision?

I'll be back later today to announce the winner of Jill MacDonald's print giveaway.
