The chair we found on our ‘thrifting’ excursion: $5
Our find of the year—a 1950′s glider: $20
A can of paint, 2 yards of cheap fabric and child labor: $25 (and a homeade milkshake)
Having a perfect place to sew and knit and hearing your 7yo say, “When I grow up, I’m gonna be ONE crafty momma!” : priceless
1. You’re gonna ask me how I recovered that chair and I’m gonna tell you that there was weeping, gnashing of teeth, hammerin’, staplin’, and then I put an afghan over the side that I completely messed up. In other words, you should get your recoverin’ tutorial from someone who measures twice and cuts once—-instead of from someone who just cuts! Thanks to Katilin for her help!
2. Just got that glider into the ‘studio’—thanks to Marcus and Macdaddy. I promise to show you soon—although I’m afraid the suspense is gonna be more exciting than the actual reveal.
Hope your weekend was full of treasures too!
