Etsy Taste Test

Etsy – the easy to love, but impossible to find what you are looking for website, just re-entered my life.   I took the Taste Test and suddenly I no longer see a whole lotta junk I don’t like.   I am still playing, but had to take a quick break to share this.  ‘Taste Test‘  seems like it works pretty good.

western belt lawn chair

I grew up all western.  Men in my family (not my husband)  wear cowboy hats everyday (because they work cows for a living).  I own wranglers (that I haven’t worn in 20 years) in a variety of colors. I have belts that have my name on them and shiny silver buckles to compliment.  And now I know what to do with these relics that I can can’t throw away.  I think I might NEED this chair.

Though to make it myself, I think I would find it very tempting to spray the frame with Antique brown metallic paint (I have a can of this for my house to touch up all my door knobs).   I find something very design-y cool about this.  And it speaks to my roots in a way I can love.  What about you?

You can buy this chair or a similar original from kikithespunkymunkey on etsy.

Oh and this caught my eye too….

    A lil’ on the late side, but thanks for the shout out on my western belt lawn chair! I love to recycle/upcycle/thrift/create, so sometimes things like the chair just happen lol. I also use the scraps from the belts to make some pretty snappy looking cuff bracelets…also sold on Etsy… – And since you’ve seen the chair (1 1/2 yrs ago!!!!) I’ve re-woven the seats of vintage ladderback chairs with thrifted Guatemalan belts 🙂 Thanks again for the kind words and sharing the chair! Lori aka kikithespunkymunky
