Learning...









I am always thinking I would love to take up this new hobby...or that one...or maybe both. Usually it ends up becoming overwhelming, or sitting on the shelf until next month I might actually have time. This one has been sitting in the garage for about a year and a half...but, I finally learned something new with one of my most favorite people-my mom. She helped me to tackle this old chair I got for free (or stole from a garage where it had been abandoned{with permission from the actual garage owner}...I like to think it was rescued). I think we did a pretty great job for first timers, but I know I couldn't have done it without my mom, especially since I was sick on and off throughout the project. We pulled out about 10,000 staples, but we were able to put it all back together with very few problems. It went from nasty dirty mauve to a soft new brown to put in our bedroom.

I can't wait to see my parents again-they're always teaching us new things. I love when they are here and I loved having my parents come for the long weekend! I hope next time they can come in sunshine with no projects to do...and no illness!

Sick on and off throughout the project, huh? Hmmm.... wonder what could be making you sick.... :) I'm just kidding but you opened yourself up for that one! :)

The chair looks super cute by the way!!
