Like So Many Before Me...

 I have decided to do the impossible...

Reupholster a CHAIR!!!!!

Isn't She Lovely?

Well it's not too imposeible and the chair is FREE!

Yes, FREE!!!!!!

It all started early one morning on my way to work, as I was driving along I noticed a living room armchair beside the dumpster.

It was calling my name.

 But since I was already late for work, I continued right on. Thinking to myself that if it's meant for me then it would be there after my 8 hour shift.

So on I went.

Well it turns out that it was meant to be mine, as soon as I returned home I noticed that it was still there patiently waiting for me to bring it home.

I had to have a little help getting it into my house, so I enliseted my roommate's boyfriend.

We planted my new lovely in the living room right next to my workstation.

At this very moment I'm washing the cushion cover and I have to disinfect the outside before I will even start the project of taking her apart very carefully.

Hopefully tomorrow I can stop at Hobby lobby and look over some fabric and get an idea of how I want her to look.

Wish me luck, I have the feeling I'm going to need it...
