You know I love BUGLY stuff.
This was a sad little chair at the Salvation Army.
It needed me.
It is not standing on it’s tippy toes…..it’s broken.
So, I called in my assistant.
He loves busy work.
He has retired for the fourth time…..and he needs busy work.
We shall oblige.
Please note Romeo’s confused, baffled expression.
Please note he is also holding, one, single, solitary, nail.
He loves having my daddy around.
I love having my daddy around.
Daddy did this.
And this, in about five minutes.
Then, it was my turn.
I didn’t let him down.
Want to see?
Want to see why you HAVE to stop walking by these BUGLY chairs?
Before I show you….remind yourself.
You saw it correctly. Bet you didn’t notice how pretty those legs were before, did you? Distressing brings out the beauty of the “bones” of the wood.
Pretty cool isn’t it? I love POPS of red or navy with white!
On a side note.
When I was little, we moved to the South. On my first week at my new school, I was standing with my friends by the “Pepsi” machine and said…..
“I love pop.”
They said, “What?”
I said, “I love pop.”
I was new to this school and the south.
Needless to say, I did not know that they did not have a clue what “pop” was.
They did not call, “Pepsi”, pop and acted like I had a horn sprouting from my northern nose.
These are the same new friends who were talking later that week, with horrified whispers, about a pregnant girl in our school. Also the same NEW friends and classÂ that I explained rather loudly to, that my mom would LOVE for me to have a baby, because she LOVED babies.
Needless to say, I did not know how babies were made.
They acted as if I had horns sprouting from my northern head.
That has nothing to do with why I love red. Nor why I think it POPS.
Or does it?
I want to keep it but I won’t.
This may be my favorite.
For real this time.
Talk to me people.
Ready to pick up your own BUGLY chair?
This was my left over trim from this pillow post, used as piping and drop cloth fabric slip covers and a little ASCP.
I’m thinking about offering my seamstress money to teach me how to make my slip-covers. She only charged $7.00 a piece but it adds up. I think she would do it. Then I would cut out that expense and could teach you guys.
Whatcha’ think? Sound good?
Turned out so crisp and pretty!
Pretty neat, huh?
Let me know your thoughts!
