Before And After Curbside Treasure

Happy Friday Everyone!


Do you guys remember these beauties?

Remember my sweet hubby picked them up for me from the curbside?

Remember all their yuckiness?

Well, one is finally all done!

With a fresh coat, or two, of creamy dreamy white paint...

Brand new upholstered seat...

Which I upholstered with fabric from this bolt I found at a thrift store for only....ready for this....$15.00! Can you believe it! I think I'm going to make curtains for our bedroom with the rest.

And with a little elbow grease...the yuckiness is all gone. A real trash to treasure, don't you think? I love it.


Wishing Everyone A Fantabulous Weekend.

Blessings.








Hugs and Kisses,

Good morning my dear friend,
Your chair looks so wonderful! It goes with the rest of your dining room so beautifully now. How sweet that your hubby would pick those up for you! And you got that gorgeous fabric for a steal.

I have to blame you because I have become a trash inspector looking for treasures. The chair came out beautifully, like a professional.
