What I was up to on Friday

I have been having some fun yesterday, so I
thought I would share it.

My fun was in the form of recovering some chairs..
first is the ones I bought at an auction last year.
They looked good, but just not what I wanted,
so I finally got on the stick and got busy.

here is the before

the after.

I forgot to take a before,
But was covered in the blue toile of
this pattern, like this much better.

and this is the back :D
This was actually my first project
for the day, but I saved it for last.
The door, and the side of my buffet needed
some tlc, so here is the putty.
Waiting for it to dry.

the door and the side of buffet.

the door sanded, and the side sanded,
I forgot to flip the side pic, sorry about that. lol
and here is the finished product:

New knobs and everything!! I just love it now!!
I thought I would share with you some of
it's character....

this little black spot...
well I am sure some little boy got into
some sort of trouble over it...
it is a bb hole! lol.

here is another shot, lol,
I made a funny lol, of the hole.

I hope you all enjoyed the projects of the day.
More tomorrow!

Tonite hubby and I go to the Ducks Unlimited Nite,
they are playing Texas Hold'em, and I get to play
too!! Will let you know how it goes...
lol, I only play for fun, so, as long as I enjoy
the company, the chatting and getting to catch
up with those I haven't seen a while, it
will be a hit with me!!
See everyone tomorrow!
Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take,
but by the moments that take your breath away.
A sense of humor can help you tolerate the unpleasant,
cope with the unexpected & smile through the day.
There is one happiness in life to love & be loved!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderfully blessed day!!

Also don't forget to SMILE...
You will get on in return!!!
