Today is the Day! Junk Partaay!!

Well, it's Finally Here!
Junk Party Day
Pop on Over to
to See Fantastic Finds
Fabulous Furniture Re-incarnations!!
I was Hoping to have Finished
atleast One of these chairs
for the Party but...
between swimming, bike riding, cleaning, laundry, ortho appointments,
it just Wasn't possible;)

So, anywho
Here are the Before photos...
Ugly Faded, Stained, Torn asian motif fabric.
The chairs are marked Florence, Italy
on bottom.
Italian + Chinese???

And Voila'
The Almost After photos..
Buttery Yellow fabric with Sage Green Palm trees!
They don't quite match my Existing decor but,
When we move to the Lake, these are going to
Look Fabulous in My New home;)
I don't know if I will finish with the Upholstery tacks
or use gimp(trim) to finish off the edges.
What do You think would
I would Love to hear Your suggestions!

Last Weekend My Mom & I Stopped at a Garage Sale

Late in the Day, We were Expecting it to be Picked over

& All the Good stuff gone..

But, Mom noticed this Nice Little Glass top table & 3 Chairs for $40!

(a little high in my opinion)

She immediately started telling me how Perfect it would be in My


I debated for quite Awhile..

Until Another shopper showed up & Headed

Straight for this set;)

That was All the Pushing I needed, My Competitive side took over


I bought the set for $25!

These are the Before photos...

And the After photos!

I Love how it Turned out & have been Enjoying it
Every Morning with a Cuppa Chai tea
A Decorating magazine..Of course!
