Copy Cat- Yep that is me!

To copy is the greatest form of compliment! It means you were a wonderful inspiration to somebody else! The main reason we all blog is to share our ideas and to transfer those ideas to our own homes with our own personal touches. We are each others Pottery Barn & Ballard catalogs!:)

Have y'all seen this amazing chair that Deborah did over at Upcycling My Very Ordinary Life!? If not be sure to head over and pay Deborah a visit! She is one crafty lady! When I saw her chair it was love at first!! I knew I had to try and re create this chair.
Just so happens out in the garage I had this chair I purchased several weeks back. It was just perfect for this project!

This chair was nasty y'all! It took me a part of two days and and an entire thing of Clorox wipes to clean it up!

I finally finished cleaning it up and brought it inside because it got up to 105 today. Way to hot to be outside! I used my Chateau Gray Annie Sloan paint for the base color. As you can see it is rather thin so it was going to require more than one coat.

Two coats later and this is what I got. Next I busted out my Old White chalk paint and well forgot to take a pic so just imagine it!;) I will say that I officially hate anything with spindles! They take forever to paint!!

This is where I am at this evening. I am hoping to get this project completed tomorrow sometime. I can not wait!!

Hope your Friday is going well y'all! Also if y'all have a treasure ya wanna share be sure to head over to Treasure Hunt Thursday and link up! I would love to have ya stop by and party with me and the rest of the ladies!

Treasure Hunt Thursday #17!!

Welcome to Treasure Hunt Thursday! I am pretty much repeating what I said last Thursday for those who may be joining us this week and did not last week. As many of you know Rhonda formerly of Blue Creek Home and now My Blue Creek Home had some technical difficulties with her blog. She is still in the midst of trying to get everything ironed out so I was honored when she asked me if I wanted to take care of her Treasure Hunt Thursday party! Thank you so much Rhonda and I hope to make you proud!  Rhonda was super sweet and made the Treasure Hunt Party Button with FMFPTY on it so that everybody will recognize that it is still the same party just at a different house!:) Thank you so much Rhonda! If you have this button on your sidebar and get a chance please update your party button and URL over to my place. I would so much appreciate it!
Thank you to everybody who participated last week!! We had a total of 21 party goers! WhooHoo!! I was super excited about the turn out and hope that everybody not only continues to party with us but invites all their friends as well. Starting  next week I will do a feature post and high light every body's awesome treasures so be on the look out to see if you are featured!:)
Now on to my treasures for the week. 

The boys and I made our biweekly trip to HomeGoods and I found this awesome lil' frame. It was only $2.99 but had a nick out of the corner like somebody dropped it. It was the very last one so I am guessing it was left because somebody else did not see the charm in a nicked ornate frame. I asked if they could take anything off and so I got it for just $2!!

My sunglasses broke over the weekend and I was super bummed because I did not want to shell out another $17 on a new pair. When we cruised thru the $$ section at Target I saw these for just $2.50 each!

They jumped quickly in the cart after I took um out of their bag and saw the awesome detail on the sides. 

This is another HomeGoods find. I had been wanting on of these lil' caddies forever but had never found one in my price range. When I saw this one marked at just $12.99 I knew it was meant to be mine. I have several possible locations for it.

So what did y'all find this week?

As with all parties there are the normal rules. You must link back to From My Front Porch To Yours. Just common courtesy. Only link up to your Treasure Hunt Thursday post and NOT your blog homepage. Please no advertising. Also be sure to visit at least the link before you and after you to just say Hi! It makes partying all the more fun!:)

Do you have an ugly sofa?

Last week I was over visiting Beth at Home Stories AtoZ and saw her amazing new slip covers! I literally was drooling.

I kept reading and saw that she had teamed up with to give away 5 slip covers. I was so in so I headed over to not quite knowing what to expect. I have been shopping for slip covers for quite sometime for our more than loved sofa but they all are well over $200! More than what I was willing to spend on something I hope to replace in the next year.

Let me tell ya ladies they have some awesome covers and you will NOT believe how much they are!! I got not one but TWO slip covers for less than $70 y'all!! Yes, you heard me right. Instead of waiting to see if I won I just went ahead and ordered me some. With that kinda pricing ya can't go wrong!  Now of course they did not have the white slip cover for the chair so I had to adjust my color story but I will share what I did picked  once mine arrive.

Now before you go rushing off to visit Beth, which I highly suggest you do, her give away is now over. Don't be bummed though cause I was on FB this morning and saw that has now teamed up with Kristin over at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia! So head on over and join in on the fun! You may just get to be the lucky winner of an awesome slip cover!
