I'm longing for Spring!
I know Spring will be here soon, and I'm ready for lazy days spent in the backyard working in my flower beds while the boys play in the sandbox. One of my favorite things in my backyard are these vintage lawn chairs. They belonged to my dear Aunt Oma. She is the oldest sister of my grandma, Mama Winnie. Neomah is one of the neatest people I know. She's kind, generous, wise, gracious and a strong Christian woman. Her faith and attitude on life inspire us all. After falling almost five years ago, she can no longer live in her home and is living in the same nursing home that my grandma lives in. Since she can't stay at her home, she has given away many things to family members. These chairs were in her garage. I wanted them when I first saw them. No one else had shown any interest so I was lucky enough to get them.
They are perfect in our backyard.
I love sitting in them and watching the boys play.
The chairs were in great shape other than needing a little TLC.
I attempted to remove any rust and old paint with a wire bursh with metal scraper and sandpaper.
Next, I spray painted them.
Here they are in early February covered in ice and snow.
I'll be linking up to Cha Cha at Sit Relax and Read. I appreciate Sentimental Sundays so much for giving me a place to share things that are in my home (and outside my home) that are special and meaningful.
Thanks, Cha Cha!
I'll be sharing my vintage lawn chairs with
