I'm obsessed with peacock chairs at the moment. Not the Hans Wegner midcentury classic but the retro cool cane thrones made famous by the likes of Morticia Addams (and Al Green it seems).
First I found a doll's chair in my thrifting adventures then a pair of children's chairs. This week my elusive chair came one step closer. I found a peahen chair.
The smaller less ostentatious "female" to the strutting peacock chair is the next stage in my thrift shop journey. I feel the elusive peacock is just one step away. Of course I could just track down a new one but that would be too easy. I want it vintage. I want it in a thrift store and I want it cheap. Can't be that hard (???). The peahen will be fixed, painted and a new cushion made to patiently await her mate.
My rattan chairs from last week are sporting new satin varnish and I've started work on the cushions. Ralph Lauren won. Hopefully photos soon. I'm off to hose my garden. It's a momentous afternoon. We have had enough rain in the past few weeks for a momentary relaxing of the level 6 water restrictions we have had all summer. We are allowed to hose our gardens for 1 hour! I bet I feel guilty as I hold the hose and daydream instead of taking over an hour to bucket water my small courtyard.
