Chair redo, thrifty tip, and blue find

thrifty find. plain box. wood candle holders.
Tip: use the candle holders for easy feet.
Everything looks better elevated. =)

Blue treasure:
A 1971 West coast Amtrack schedule.

My Monday project.
From this...

gathered up a floral sheet,
and a solid green already ruffled bed skirt...
(Like brand new at thrift store,
and perfect length for the chair.)

figured out a pattern....
(used the piece of fabric the bed skirt was attacked to.)

and made this.

sweet huh?
It's one of the new chairs for at my store.
We'll be serving "Tea & Treats" soon.
All in the works.

Here are some of the messes in the middle of the project:

moving shelves around.
(one fell over and broke to smithereens.)

Moving shelving around to use as a back support for a 'wall'.
The other side is storage for my now 1/2 size crafting room.
Hope it will be big enough!
(not teaching painting classes any more,
so do not really need 14' of tables.)

Wall partly done.
(my brother and sis in law helped sooo much!)

My brother being silly,
His normal self! =)

Have a wonderful Monday everyone,
and please go check out all the other posts at these special places.

You have a lot of projects done! Busy busy busy but I can see that it was all worth it. And the last one with all the work - well, you have help with people you love and I'm sure there was fun in the mix :-)
