Spot The Difference

The fact that I actually thought about digging my shorts out from the deep dark recesses of the rear of my " bottoms" drawer today, has horrified me! (pun intended btw). The weather here is crazy. It's the second day of August and I feel as though Summer is not just around the corner but is, in fact, upon us. The forecaster assures me that we are in for some cooler nights, phew.

Weather aside, do you feel like playing a little game?

I won this chair on ebay recently for around $50. The brand is Molmic which I know nothing about apart from the fact that the chair is Australian made. I am guessing, by the quality of the workmanship, that it is a rather good brand, (feel free to enlighten me:o))

Can you spot the difference. Compare photos 1&2 with photos 3&4. The answer is in photo 5. No cheating now!













I realise that was a pretty easy ask and hope I didn't insult your intelligence...it's just me trying to be creative with a blog post :o)
I just remembered that there is only an arm-protector on one arm of the chair. We have turned the house upside down looking for the other one, to no avail. Where on earth does an arm-protector go on it's day off???

That is a great chair Ange. It looks great with the white feet too. I can't believe you got it for only $50!!

I agree that the weather was strange this weekend! We were all walking around in shorts and flip flops too! Thank goodness that cool change arrived today.

Best wishes for a fabulous week,
Natasha.

Ange I love the wing chair, new feet and all. Looks like a comfy spot to sit and relax - don't know weather that happens too often though. Sandy x
Yes I was painting in my shorts & singlet on the weekend but some cooler nights ahead.

brismod said...

Nice comfy chair, Ange! The new feet are cute. But where did that arm protector go? It's not in your shorts drawer??

Jeanne said...

Great looking chair, I love the simple touch you added. Funny that about arm chair protectors, I was having the same thought as I stampeded over our down feather couch cushions in an effort to get them to 'fluff'.
Lost the arm chair cover in the process...now, where oh were???

Best wishes for a wonderful week Ange!

Jeanne :)

Christine said...

Great little re-vamp!! Hope you find the arm-protector!! I'm sure it will turn up in the most bizarre place! Enjoy your balmy weather, we've got some here today too! Christine x

I had to go to photo 5, lol. It has actually been mild in Canterbury for the last few days as well, but I don't think winter is over :( xx Karen

Trish said...

baysiderose said...

Love the chair, I must admit I had to go right down to the 5th photo. - Arm protector with the odd socks that just disappear!

Thea said...

Okay, I didn't get it until you pointed it out. I am guessing that somebody spilled something on the other protector and has hidden the evidence! I know that is what my clan would do.

Janette said...

It looks like a really comforty chair Ange! I think Thea has probably worked it out correctly re the arm protector! :)
Have a lovely evening!

The Pink Poodle said...

OOOHHH!!! Ange...I GOT IT...
(but i did have to look twice!!)..~~~~~

dumb old me....

where is that protector...hopefully not in the rubbish??

i couldnt find all of my dads cards the other week in their folder..(credit cards/medibank/medicare etc etc)...
MM!! I had thrown it in the rubbish...in a tied bag..

lucky I kind of thought of looking there??

Hey Ange. Molmic is definitely a very highly regarded (and expensive!) brand - kinda like Moran but better (in my opinion anyway) - so you did really well to find that chair on eBay. If you wanted to find out more about Molmic check out this link: http://www.molmic.com.au/default.aspx.
I love that chair and the new little feet are such a great little re-vamp.

Nice pick up on ebay Ange. You always seem to get some great bargains. I got the feet before the fifth photo and think they are a great improvement.

Tomines hjem said...

Thank you angie for your fantastic words about my blog! I do feel the same about yours! I love what you did with the grey cabinet, and i can not belive the Low price you Get on ebay!! Happy week my friend, and i will look back to you tomorrow!!

Hi Ange,
Nice chair! I'd love to find something like that.
Thanks for stopping by my kitchen chairs post.
You asked what ink I used for my stamps. I just used black satin latex paint. I keep a quart around for little projects.
And you know, I stamped them AFTER I finished all of those pleats! I should have just stamped the piece of fabric. But thank goodness I didn't smear them or anything.

Mommy Mayhem said...

Robyn said...

WOW, WHAT A BARGAIN! It's gorgeous! ...I know where your cover went. It's with all my missing single socks in some other realm. ;-)

Gracefully Vintage said...

Hello My lady, Love that chair, you did an amazing job. Sorry so busy i ddnt get bk to you, I either us heavy staple gun or small nails to secure the piping, then fold fabric over and pull, or use hot glue..Both work great. That Turned out Just Lovely.

Hi, I found your blog via someone who is following mine. I like your chair 'fetish'! I, too, love chairs and have been going to re-upholstery classes for about 7 years. Mostly for the social aspect, as I can do most things on my own now.
I love what you have done to your chairs, it's amazing what a bit of paint and material can achieve, oh and a bit of elbow grease and inspiration. I like the new legs on the easy chair - they give the chair a much smarter look.
You can see some of my upholstery projects here:

Have you looked under the seat cushion they are notorious for hiding under there and sometimes you don't think to look. Amazing what a cute little leg can do for a chair, hope you have a lovely day cheers Katherine

Millie said...

Now this was a very good buy! Looking forward to seeing the after shots once you've waved your magic Ange wand over it.
Millie ^_^

Janean said...

i was admiring the chair itself so much i didn't notice the legs, but then when i saw what you did, they DO look better!
