Believe it or not, I have a million-bazillion projects in the works and on my "list." Many of them are in various states of halfwaydoneness. Today I actually finished something! Yay!
I try to hit garage sales whenever I can, but I usually don't think to do it until later in the day, when they are all closed up! But, a couple weeks ago, Sarah and I made it to a few and found some treasures. We got these retro (circa 1955) metal folding chairs for $3 for the pair! I'm not sure how we'll use them, but who doesn't need a few extra chairs?!
I liked them before I even found out that they fold up, which is a super cool feature. (The legs fold inwards to make them flat for storage.)
Of course, we had to cute-ify them! Sarah and I painted them bright red and found some great decor fabric for $2/yd to do the seats. I didn't really intend for them to be so girly, but I guess it's inevitable when we're in charge.
They conveniently coordinate with Sarah's new/future pink and red color scheme, so maybe a desk chair?
Cute, custom chairs for less than $5 plus spray paint! Yessss!
On another note, The Maternal Lens is up for some blog awards! Stop by and help us out with a vote or two or three!
There is also a really neat silhouette GIVEAWAY going on until tomorrow night, thanks to Aimee at HomeSpun Threads. I'll be blogging more about it tomorrow, so check back!
MOVING ON UP....
