What Do You Get ???






What do you get when you tear apart an old hassock, a chair frame, and a old Pennsylvania House end table?

Well, you get an old chair with a hassock/side table.

It
was very hard too! Let me tell you. But, for my first try, I think it
came out pretty good. NOT Something I would sell at this moment, but, a
pretty good learning project. Can't wait to try this recovering project
again.

Connie and I went sailing on Sat, morning, our first time
together in over a month. We had lots of fun, and I was good, very
good. The only thing I bought was a mirror to hang over my husband's
big screen. I wanted to draw the eye up and away from that TV!!

The
barn sale Connie and I held at my house today, I think it went well. We
got rid of the yard sale Stuff, well any way that's what we called it.

Gloria
from Vintage Home and her husband stopped by. I was very happy to meet
them. Not, because they bought almost everything I was selling, but,
she started out just like Connie and I. I am going to visit her in a
couple of weeks. I can not wait to see what magic her husband did on my
furniture!!!

Almost forgot Colleen from Fresh Vintage had rented a spot over Vintage Home during the summer. What a small world!@!

Great job Dona....I love the fabric. I know someday when you take a piece of furniture apart you are going to find money or hidden jewels ( I thought maybe this time:))...hugs, Linda
