December 1/12
I have decided to go back and buff up some of these older posts, maybe nobody will ever see them, who knows, but I feel some of these deserve a little more "attention" than I previously gave them. I will have to retrieve photos from different computers, so it may be a work in progress.

Hi all!  I am going to start with some previously done "before and afters"  My Facebook friends have seen these before, but if you are new to my ramblings,  they will be new to you.


This is a chair that my husband had when we got married.  It was in good shape at the time, but still extremely ugly!  I held on to it because I could see the possibilities.


I hope you all like it as much as I do, I finally got around to taking a close up of the fabric, it is gorgeous, the white is stiched on top of the black with just a glint of silver showing around the edges!  Now I wish I had held on to the couch that went with it, but I finally talked Johnny into throwing it out last year, isn't that always the way!  Oh well, it was in pretty bad shape anyway.
