~~^~~ My Road Kill Chair ~~^~~

I Finished My Road Kill Chair Today!!! 

I found this Chair left beside a Street for the trash-man to pick up
 in a little town in
 while I was looking for TREASURES on Bargains Galore on 64!

!!!! ROAD KILL !!!!
It had a front leg busted off & one of the leg Spindles is missing.
but being me I had to bring it back to life!

so I went to Wally World (aka) Walmart
 bought the longest wood screws they had ! 
My Sweet Hubby
got out the drill & screw driver & went to work on it!

I took some Burlap & stenciled the Black Crow & Star on it for a new seat cover.

We added a board to the front to give it more strength.

Spray painted it Black
 then I sanded it so the wood to show though.

looking some better already 

I cut 5 strips of Burlap
 tied them along the front to help hide the added piece of wood board that we placed with wood screws to help give it some strength. 

Then I started adding all the "FUN" stuff

I added the Metal Scarecrow with the Black Crow perched on the Hat.
 Then a cute little Crow Pillow

It's coming back to new life!

This side of the chair was missing the wood spindle
 so ... 
I used a twig vine & a fall leaf garland strand to help camouflage that.

This side looked good so I just sanded it some & left it as-is.

Then I added my Fall Spray of Flowers
Then I tied it to the chair with a
Burlap & Raffia Bow. 

Looks Good with my Fake Green Pumpkin.

All Done & ready To Sell
Just need to Tag it!!!!
