Another winter project!!!


This old commode chair has been sitting in the barn for about 30 years ever since I picked it up at an estate auction...It is very old, extremely heavy, well-made chair with the original china commode and lid... Originally I had wanted to refinish the wood but never got around to it...Last week when I was putting bales in the barn I had to pass it with every trip and decided that I really MUST do something with this chair...
It has always reminded me of a throne and then I burst out laughing when I thought of one of the meanings of the word "throne". What a wonderful play on words....so a throne it will be... but a very whimsical one...and I can even cover the padded lid with CQ... You know how I love to paint furniture and it has a lot of marvelous surfaces to paint..... Looks like I will have some fun projects once winter comes...

Oh! Gerry, I absolutely love that idea! The power really came on with THAT thought! Hope I get to see the finished chair. Fit for a queen I'm sure. :)

I really didn't know those still existed lol
I automatically thought of the old English courts, Henry the VIIIth, and him being so greedy and lazy that he would sit on a chair that had a chamber pot under it... that would have to be where the 'throne' came in :)

I still have my baby potty chair, which is wooden also, but not as lovely as your throne. And of course, my rear wouldn't fit in it anymore....
