If you recall, we get the "value village feeling" and it usually turns into a great score. Well my friends, I hit a mother of a score at the Value Village on Bank street let me tell you!!! Stay tuned for a sneak peak of that one...
Anyways I got this chair for $8.
|orange tweed and walnut veneer. Cant say no to that!|
So the chair cushions are not in great shape and don't match my room. I went to Rockland Textiles here in town and bought some cute "kiwi" coloured upholstery fabric to redo them. I would say its like a green goldenrod if that makes sense, not so kiwi-y. Whatever. Its lightweight but thick. It matches my room. It has a very vintage look. Here are some pics of the really easy recovery process:

|sewing chair! a place to put things. I need more places.|
|the colour is awesome. its hard to get it on the camera tho|
NOW, wanna see my couch?? It needs a little work but I think it will sell well which is good cause I have kids who need to go to school one day :)
|cletus, always the couch ruiner.|
