From trash to treasure!

Remember this manky old chair I got from the inorganic collection? (ie. outside on the side of the road...). Well, I've been having alot of fun with it..

Sanded it all back...

















Cut a piece of signply for the seat and gave it two coats of undercoat.




Bought a piece of foam for it, for just $10...






and voila!




Painted it black and covered the foam in a piece of upholstery fabric that only cost $4.50.

I also visit that inorganic store sometimes. I love free treasures.
Nice job
