Antique Phone Chair

I shared this redo on the blog Homemaker On A Dime this week!  I thought I would share for those of you that may not have been able to pop over to see…the story goes like this:
I had been searching for an antique gossip bench or telephone chair since finding this picture on Pinterest:
(Scissors and Spatulas)
I was instantly smitten.
I just had to find a cute little gossip bench to redo!
While visiting family over Thanksgiving and perusing the local Craigslist for York, PA,
I scored!
I was quite excited when I found her.
And she was priced well within my budget!
I had a great time redoing her…
wht do you think about her now?
Meet Vintage Veronica!
She did even make it to the Blessed Nest…
she SOLD immediately!
That’s how we do it.
Visit the Blessed Nest HERE.
