Did I mention it was in BAD shape. (I know what you are probably thinking, and yes I could just go by a new one but it wouldn't be a Old/Vintage glider. There is just something to the old and giving it new life ) My husband stopped him and took a look at it up close. The metal frame is still tight and he even sat on it. It just needs the wood slates replaced and sanded and repainted. I still look at it and shake my head but if anyone can "bring it back to life" then it would be my husband. I hope one day to have this done and sitting on my front porch at my dream house.
I am leaning towards painting it a rustic red, and then have the wood slates stained a dark brown. And then make some throw pillows to add to it.
I have been searching the internet for more vintage metal gliders and I found a few....
I found this one over at Variation on Vintage , I love the long cushion.
Then I came across this one (I would like our wood redone in this dark shade) at Because I like to Decorate.
The Dwelling Station. So picture this one painted in a rustic red with wood slates like the one above this pic.
Then maybe some of theses old looking vintage/country burlap pillows across the back.
Well it's going to be a while before we get started on it, and I will make sure to update as we do!!
