Ruby Tuesday

Yesterday, while we downtown, we wandered into Holt Renfrew.  Actually, we more bolted than wandered as it was cold outside - and they have classy restrooms.




We were heading up the escalator when I spied the perfect Ruby Tuesday shot.  We did stop to ask the concierge if we could take the photo - it's that kind of place.



But, don't you think this chair could be just as gorgeous with a coat of shiny red Varathane?  It's destined to go to the dogs.  We bought it for $3 at a thrift store for Paws on the Run.  Right now it seems to be holding up a pile of boxes in the garage. Eventually,  it will get driven to it's new  home. 

Thank you Mary T for continuing this meme.  Check out the other fun red photos here.

That red is stunning. Liked your MYM.
I'm getting used to my new computer as it has windows 7 on.

Yup ... that's a PERFECT Ruby chair for Tuesday and I suspect the blue one would look great with a coat of shiny ruby paint ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

I told you I had good taste! And feel free to paint it red - it is my favourite colour. :)

A classy red chair,
seemingly spun out of air—
a good settin’ place.

My Ruby Tuesday

What an unusual chair! Maybe yours could be worth money! The red chair: I'm looking at how it's stabilized and wonder if I would fall over backwards if I sat in it! I would be afraid to sit in it. Yours looks much more supportive. an interesting post.

Those chairs remind me of the 70S!

That chair sure looks eye-catching. Would love to have it in my living room.

You have quite the find there in the garage. Krylon Fusion paint would make it look just as spiffy as its upscale cousin, methinks!
