New Project

Actually, it's not really all that "new" but I just forgot to blog about it at the time. I bought this chair from Goodwill for only $25 in mid-May when Paige was in town visiting. We both agreed that it would be so much fun to get into refinishing furniture, so this is going to be my "test piece" to see if I am even any good at it.
Here is the before picture. I am in the process of working on it now (along with a million other projects) so when it is done I will post the after picture. I plan to paint it an off white/ivory color, rebuild the seat since it is falling apart, and get some pretty fabric from one of these sites:
Hopefully it cools down a bit outside (to atleast under 100 degrees!) so I can stand being out there longer than a few minutes at a time! Anyhoo... I hope it turns out as good as I plan.

I can't wait to see how it turns out! I refinished a side table a few weeks ago. I used a stain and poly combo and I didn't love the way it went on, but its so gratifying to see it transform.
