mid century art.... and a baby chair?






got a hold of some mid-century art this past weekend at a garage sale. I really needed this stuff cause some of the walls are looking bare. the back label on one of them says 'Turner Wall Accessory". They look nice, and compliment the mid-century sofa. I'm always glad when I find stuff i really need. Now the flip side of this story is that a few weekends ago me and Megan got a ton of stuff at an estate sale. there was a cool old baby high-chair with cracked-ice vinyl that was $20. It was nice to look at, but neither of us wanted or needed it, so we didn't give it a second look. The other day I was driving by that particular house and they had a bunch of trash on the curb. I saw the baby chair sitting there waiting for the garbage man!! No way I could let this be lost forever in a landfill. I grabbed it, and I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with it. Megan is creative, I'm sure she can take it home and repurpose into something cool that I would never think of. Anyways, glad i rescued this, even though i don't need it.

  1. Will it fit an adult butt to be a kitchen chair?

  7. That IS awesome! Maybe stick a Tiki Totem in it, and arrange little plastic islanders and natives on the tray!

  9. Don't repurpose it! It's adorable just as it is. Love the cracked ice vinyl. Have you priced that stuff lately? I'll say again - don't repurpose. Or at least don't do so permanently.
