Lost and Found

Hello dear readers,

Remember I mentioned in my previous post that I found other lost items while looking for the two?
Chairs I crocheted a few years ago, an unsuccessful experiment.  I used  white craft glue to stiffen the finished crochet work and it left ugly stains.  I was quite sure I threw them away, as I usually do when something fails to meet my liking.  Now that I looked at them again I tried to save them.

Added a crochet piece to the seat.  You can see the difference of colors.

Painted them all over with acrylic brown.  The seats covers are pieces of paper napkins.  I'll make real cushions later.

They look a little shabby but I like them this way.

Another chair, from a tutorial on the net, but so long ago I cannot find the link.

Also found these painted metal little trays. They came in a packet of 12 . 

Don't forget my giveaway.   There is still time to take part.  The draw will be on Monday night.

Have a great weekend with blessings.


  1. I like the make over of your wicker chairs, Drora, the change in color make them so nice :)! I don't know if you already know this, but after you've edited them with diluted white glue and dried, you could use wood colored stain.
    Have a nice weekend
    Warm hugs, Ilona

  2. Your armchairs are great and like you I prefer them with their new look.

  3. muy bien recuperados esos sillones...

  4. Genial la recuperación de sus sillones, feliz fin de semana:-)

  5. Hi, Drora! Very good chairs! They look old, cozy and loved. I like a small rug near the seats, very realistic. Hugs, Julia

  6. Love how your chairs look with the paint! Perfect color for wicker.

  7. Your lucky find is a good proof of the theory that it's good to keep things for later... it would have been a pity if you had thrown those chairs in the bin. After your makeover they look really nice, perfect for a conservatory. And those trays are another wonderful find... do you have some more corners where treasures can be found? ;O)


  8. Your chairs are wonderful and the new color is perfect. The trays are original.

  9. The chairs are wonderful! I am so glad you did not throw them away and gave new life to them! You are so creative Drora!

  10. .Bonitos sillones, y está muy bien reciclarlos.
    Me gustan las bandejas.

  11. El acabado favorece el look de los sillones. Buen reciclado.

  12. Pintados y con cojines,los sillones han cobrado un buen aspecto!!!
    Siempre encontramos cosas,que habíamos olvidado que las teníamos jajajaja!!!
    Buen fin de semana.

  13. What a clever idea to crochet furniture. I love the chair make-over! In the right setting they will look beautiful.

  14. Pues a mi me parece que quedan estupendos.

  15. Вы радуете меня. Ваши стулья хорошо смотрятся! Мне нравятся ваши разноцветные лотки!
    Хорошей недели!

  16. Hello Drora,
