Goodwill Chairs Make Over!

 My blogging has been put on hold the last days because I have been sooo busy living my life....no time for projects!
BUT....
I got this great email from my daughter  while we were enjoying ourselves in Memphis this weekend!
SHE was doing a project and is letting me share it with you!



Email text: Hey Mom....Look what I did!



$4.99 for each chair from Goodwill
plus $12 for paint and fabric from the fabric box!


Who says the pumpkin doesn't fall far from the pumpkin patch.....?








Here is how she did it!

She found the chairs and bought them because the price was right....
And they were good quality and heavy enough to not blow away....







The shape and structure are great......







Love the color.....not predictable....and it certainly makes the caning on the back look fresh!







And like any good daughter of mine....
she had some great fabric stashed away that was perfect for this project!








And it is clear that Biggie Smalls the Chihauha totally approves too!

Hey Girl....Great Job!
And...
a big thank you for having this amazing project ready for me to share with my blogging friends!
