Metamorphosis Monday and a Settee


I found this cutie at a thrift shop. It was rusty and broken in some areas. Sorry, forgot to take before pics!

I cleaned and welded the rusty and broken areas, primed it, then gave it a nice shiny coat of red rustoleum paint! Isn't it just too cute? When time permits, I will make cushions for it for the seat and back. I think I have some vintage tablecloths that might work! Stay tuned!
I'm linking up to Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday Let's al go take a tour and see what the other ladies have been up to!

Have a Creative Day!
