I've been so incredibly inspired by many wonderful bloggers.
They've inspired me to tackle projects that I used to believe were impossible.
They've inspired me to take chances with restyling furniture, home decor, and thrifting.
Recently, at an auction, I purchased a set of 5 or 6 chairs for $2.50.
$2.50 total, not per piece, but for the lot.
The chairs were not in the best of shape.
None of them matched.
The chairs were actually a bit scary,
but I knew they needed love.
This is the chair that inspired me to bid.
She needs lots and lots of work.
I love the detailing in the wood.
The seat cushion is all lumpy and bumpy.
Did I mention it smells?
just a little.
just a little.
I've been wanting to tackle this project
and hope to begin next Monday.
There are gorgeous chairs being reloved
using old feed sacks for upholstery fabric.
I was hoping to find some at an auction.
I did find a few,
but they're either too rough looking or not the right size.
The last two photos are of the same bag, just reverse sides.
A reader emailed about buying one of the sacks, which is wonderful.
Anytime I post something that you'd like to purchase, please feel free to email me.
Many items end up in either my online shop or booth at the mall.
I always love to get emails.
I did find these cute seed sample sacks.
The sacks measure 6.5" x 10.5".
I'm still wondering just what to do with these.
There are probably four dozen of the bags.
Some were put in my Etsy shop,
but I'm keeping a few for myself.
Aren't they just the cutest little grain sacks?
