so i am working on the cage quilt - i decided to compromise and make a pieced top but not go as far with the design as i had in mind. yes, yes, i'm working on it but i've gotten a little sidetracked and, of course, started a couple of other things as well. i nabbed this parker foot stool on ebay for $25, picked it up yesterday and already have the upholstery ripped off and ready to replace.
i am loving this furniture refinishing kick, i tell you. so much so that i have ordered a little bosch hand sander/multifunction tool to make things go a bit quicker, now that i have about 6 chairs and a foot stool to sand plus however many future projects like a dining table, outdoor table, coffee table... we need a lot of furniture for our new space but money is tight, i am thrifty, i like to hunt for treasures and i want things that have character. this year is dedicated to finding just the right pieces for our house. and using up some of my fabric stash. yep.
