Hey There Delilah

I'd like you to meet Delilah, my new chair.  
Yes, I've named my chair Delilah. 
 I remember my mom playing that Tom Jones song repeatedly on our stereo.  Ok, I just looked up the lyrics.  Kinda depressing but still a catchy tune.  
 Maybe I named the chair after
The Plain White T's Delilah song: 
 "Hey there Delilah... Tonight you look so pretty!" 
 In any case the name is staying.   
I found Delilah at an Estate Sale on Thursday morning.  
Here she is down in the basement hanging out with a shabby wing back and some faded wicker.  I knew that she didn't belong there in the dark basement
 sitting there like a wallflower waiting
 for her prince (or princess) to come and rescue her.
  "Hey nobody puts my Delilah in a corner!" 
 I looked at her price and had to put my reading glasses on to be sure that I had seen it correctly.
  (OK, I had to put them on just to see anyway). 
I took a closer look.  She was recently slipcovered in this pretty floral material.  Someone had done a fantastic job with the piping and a zipper on the side. 
 SOLD!!!  In the car she went.  
All she needed was a little light and the right setting to make her a star!  
She is now in the Master Bedroom next to the Settee and the Armoire.  She's keeping better company these days.  I tried her out with a few side tables.  
What do you think?  
Blue telephone table or round wood table?
This wood table floats around the house and has a nice inlay on the top with a wire trim.  
I've had it for years.
I framed these prints yesterday.  I bought these botanicals at an Estate Sale a while back for 50 cents each.  I picked up some frames at Michaels yesterday.  They were 40% off.  I found the mattes on clearance for $2.50.  This is what they looked like when I bought them.
They had a brown inner matting.  I took that out and it also gave me a larger space for the prints.
I love the way they turned out.  I figure they cost me about $23.00 apiece.  I framed two on each side of the Armoire.  I was thinking of dry brushing a little white on the frames but we'll see.
Thanks for stopping by to meet Delilah!  

ps. see how I fluffed up her sagging seat HERE.
(Hey, it happens to the best of us)
Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,
XO Cindy

Beautiful chair! Glad you found her and gave her a new life!

SImple and Serene Living said...

She definitely looks like a star to me. I love the round table.

Leslie's Garden said...

I love Delilah and think she looks like the perfect spot to read a favorite book and have a cup of coffee. I really like the look of the round wood table with her, so classy! Really pretty botanical prints too!

Hi Cindy, Your chair is beautiful and what a steal! I think the darling round wood table looks best beside Delilah because it provides a nice contrast. Lovely botanicals. Your created a wonderful new spot in your bedroom.

Janette - The2Seasons said...

I love all of your finds. You definitely scored!!!

Grammy Goodwill said...

Delilah is beautiful. I think her boring brothers live with me. Their bare legs are showing, and I like her outfit much better. You got a great deal on her.

Mary said...

Wow, Delilah was a real find. I love her next to the round table and the botanical prints are gorgeous too!

Dianne said...

The round table gives the room sophistication, while the blue one is more charming and brings out the color of the wall!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Nice finds - you did great! I like what you did with the prints - pretty.
Thanks for stopping by and comment. I have seen napkins made from vintage jewelry before.
Have a great week.

Brandi said...

Wow, such a beautiful chair! I love her best next to the wood table.

Jane@Bluebird1959 said...

My, my, myyyyy Delilah (as Tom woul say)! What an absolute steal and the fabric is just so pretty. I like both tables, but my fave is the round one. Jane

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Great chair, Cindy, and what a great price! The fabric looks so good, too. Love your botanical prints. I think the frames look great as they are.

Debra@CommonGround said...

What a great find! She's beautiful and looks like she was "made" for this room!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

She looks gorgeous in her new corner with all your pretty accessories. I'm going to have that song stuck in my head now:-)

Martha said...

I'm impressed with both "Delilah" and the botanicals. I often buy ready made frames at Hobby Lobby/Michaels -- you can usually find something suitable and so much cheaper! I like that you tok off the brown part of the mat -- they look more classic that way.

She looks beautiful and like she was always meant to be there! I'm loving the round wood table since it gives it contrast but both are wonderful. :-) Thanks for sharing your awesome find with us at Inspiration Friday Cindy!
