My $2 Chair Update!

This is my first finer things Friday! Stop by and check it out!
Um, It needs something???
Almost Their ....
Tada***

This was definitely a learning experience! I learned that I can make something look a lot better with just some paint & elbow grease! I also learned the real meaning behind the "distressed look" lol
What do you think? Better or worse? My husband really wanted me to leave it alone but I just had to paint it.

Next up is the ugly seat cushion I'm thinking light and dark blue stripes.
I'm so sorry Rhoda everyone plz head over to http://southernhospitality-rhoda.blogspot.com/

Hi, found you through yardsalequeen forum. I have you bookmarked.

My personal blog has long been neglected, but I am working on some project makeovers to post IF I ever get them done.

We don't have Publix or Foodlion in my area, do they double/triple coupons that you get such good deals?
