We, Four and I rounded up this fabric yesterday ... earlier this morning I finished two of these chairs for her room ... and I thought I had today's project all worked out. That old chair, bought at a yard sale last month ... I've been having fun shopping for fabric for it, and had decided that it would look just right with basically any thing. When I saw the fabric in my closet it seemed that a match was made ... I thought maybe some funky paint and settled on this chartreuse color ... kinda settled, when I sand the old varnish off, there's a chance that staining the wood will seem more to my liking (sometimes when I handle the wood it just seems to not want to be covered up in paint). That combination recalled Spring's Shasta daisies.
A Mid Century Modern vintage 1950's red vinyl slipper chair by Viking Artline Corporation.
and, now it's all cleaned up ... bolted back together and cute as can be sitting in the den
... gonna keep it. It's just beautifully constructed and it reminds me of Roy Rogers for some reason.
The Chisolm Trail
Foot in the stirrup and my hand on the horn
I'm the best darn cowboy ever was born
Singing ki yi yippee yippee yi yippeo
Singing ki yi yippee yippee yay
Well, I started up the trail October twenty-third
Started up the trail with a 2-U herd
Up every morning before daylight
And before I sleep the moon shines bright
With a ten dollar horse and a forty dollar saddle
I'm going down to Texas for to punch them cattle
Well old Ben Bolt was a fine old boss
And he went to see his gal on a sore-back hoss
There's a stray in the herd and boss said kill it
So I shot him in the rump with the handle of a skillet
And I went to the boss to draw my roll
And he had me figured out nine dollars in the hole
Ropin' and a-tyin' and a-brandin' all day
I'm a-working mighty hard for a-mighty little pay
Well I went to the boss and we had a little chat
And I hit him in the face with my old slouch hat
With my foot in the stirrup and my hand on the horn
I'm the best danged cowboy ever was born
Well I'm gonna get married just as quick as I can
And I won't punch cattle for no darn man.
