After all the preparations that went into my son’s graduation a week ago, we planned a quiet, relaxing Memorial Day weekend with visiting friends. Yep, you know how that probably went. We ate too much, tried to do too much and stayed up too late. I think when we were younger we could have handled all those things just fine…hmm, maybe we’re getting old. (sigh) On that note, my birthday also happened to be this weekend. On Saturday we all went yard sale junking. We found some really great things.
This bench is already going through a transformation, but it isn’t done yet. The yellow fabric is part of an old bedspread. I think pillows and/or tote bags will be produced from it. Those wooden candle holders might become legs for a chair I have been holding onto for way too long.
I’ve also started transforming this chair. It’s painted, but I haven’t recovered the seat and back yet. The end table is actually half of a vanity. These halves seem to be everywhere. I even have another one in the barn. I’m hoping to get to at least one of them this week.
Hope you all had a great holiday weekend!
