Thirft store finds

Isn't this chair hideous? I love taking something this ragged and turn it into something nice. I'm going to sand it down,paint it,and recover the seat. I got it for 3 bucks! Watch for after pics!

It may be awhile though, I promised myself I would finish painting my kitchen cabinets this week. watch for before and after picture of my kitchen...It has completely wore me out and I will be so relived when it's done...did I mention my aching back?
I always have some sort of project in the works, I'm going to go look at a desk I saw on craiglist this evening..... it needs to be refinished , however it is 63 inches long and would be perfect for my crafting. It's seems a steal for 30.00 bucks...we shall see!



I was so sure I had become a millionaire when I spotted this. A girl can dream right?
It's a framed copy of the Declaration of Independence. Someone had it professionally framed at a art gallery so I was for sure it must be a valuable copy, after researching it on the internet ...wellllll, I'm not so sure after all...ugh!
I guess no fillet Mignon dinner tonight. lol

Love doing that! Great chair, especially for 3 bucks!

Can't wait to see what it looks like when you've fixed it up.

Wow, what a find, and only $3. I'll be watching to see what you do with it!
