Before I get started I want to thank my lovely Mommy and the other anonymous friend (is it you, Stace?) that commented on my last blog. Thanks to you, I will continue to blog for the good of all mankind. Heather, I think you are right, I am going to just do it as it comes to me and not plan it because as we all know, us Gemini's are not good with plans... not. at. all.
Let's get on with it shall we...
I like to browse the Free listing on Craigslist daily just to see ( Hey, if you aren't doing it you are missing out.) if there is anything I can do something with. While I have a list of things I would like to find for the house, I am pretty loosey goosey about what I will take a peek at. I only click on items that have pictures attached to them because I don't want to waste my time driving somewhere of any good distance just to lay on eyes on something that I might not want. And if I end up not liking it there is always an awkwardness, like I came to break the bad news to them that they have a piece of doodoo sitting in their living room and they should just throw it out because no one is going to want it even if it is free. Anyhow... A few weeks ago I found some very nice chairs and a bookcase that needed a little work.
The chairs were incredibly sturdy and one just needed a coat of paint and some new cushions. The bookcase needed a piece put on the back of it to stand up and some paint. Now, If I had the gift of forethought I would have taken before pictures but, alas, I do not so all you get to see is the after. Sorry, maybe next time. The pillows, I made them out of a throw I bought on clearance at Target this Summer. After I put them on the chair I realized I am going to have to add some ties to the corners of them to make them stay in place but other than that, Complete.

Bella was kind of upset that I took pictures in Boog's room and not hers so I took a picture of her chair too. I'd like to start by saying that I didn't have anything to do with th is little masterpiece. Ella found it at a garage sale and loved it so I didn't mind paying the 1 dollar they were selling it for. Enjoy...

OH and as soon as I figure out how to get that picture at the top centered I will get that taken care of and do something to make this joint more asthetically pleasing. Have a great day!

Very nice.

So these are the pillow things that were giving you epic issues with your machine yesterday? Love the print on them. Gotta love Target clearance stuff :O)

As for the header-let's talk on Monday during our photo walk.

Well I have one more chair that I am working with now. It's mid-century-beautiful. I did have problems with my machine while making those pillows but Amy fixed it. Sometimes it just take new eyes to see the solution. Stace! I knew it was you... Anonymous. I plan to leave for Colorado tomorrow. I hope your there. ;) <3
