Did they pay you to take it?

At the beginning of January I was out and about and stopped at the Evergreen Organic Garden & Feed Store and yes also an Antique store.  They were having a SALE.  I got quite a few great items and noticed a piece with a sign FREE.  I took it home and fam said did they pay you to take it?
In it's glory it was beautiful, unfortunately, I had to take it apart!  I wanted the top of the chair and the springs...
Beautiful wood flower and deconstructed look with the nails.

Yep, I saved the legs that had wheels, burlap and SPRINGSThey were filthy.

I took my Anne Sloan paint, coated it with Old White, followed by Blue, wax (it was already distressed!)

Here with Old White

I wanted to place it with my newly painted pieceThe crown to my secretary!

Stay Tuned for the Spring Reveal!
