Just realized it has been way too long...

Just realized it has been a month since my last post.  I have been crafting just not posting. Sorry to you readers... ok, reader. Not much time to go into to much detail, because we are having another group session tonight.  So I need to get busy and put up the front that I have a clean house.
 This chair is the start to my latest craftiness.  I got it at a local thrift store for $7.50!  Bought some spray paint for $14.  Took it apart and puttied the holes painted it and then put it back together.  Now I have a super duper great chair for my sewing room.
I think it turned out awesome!

So I started on another one.  This is very similar to a stool that we had growing up.  In fact, my Mom recently bought a new unfinished stool just like this one and paid $50!  So what a find when I found this one for all of $3.50! So with the paint for another $3.50.  I think that it is awesome for $7!
The kids love it, and it reminds me of home. Another success!
So here is the latest find!  In my neighbors trash!  They threw this beauty out, can you believe it?  I had to fight off some other scavengers to get it. Not really, they were still a few doors down!  I had to act fast.
There are only a few things that need to be done.  One of the arms is scratched up pretty bad. And that arm was pretty loose, but I have already taken care of that.  The leather is in pretty good shape no scratches or rips.
It is also missing a caster.  If anyone knows how to fix those please let me know before I attempt surgery to take it off.

I am also redoing some end tables that we already had.  I forgot to take a before pictures, but all that I have done so far is sand the top.
