Trash 2 Treasure Cont...

The chair that my neighbor put out in the alley to be collected as trash, my mom and I decided just had to much character  and that it would make a perfect treasure for my studio. Yes, it's true, I can hardly believe it myself. I dragged someones trash from the alley into my back yard. And there it stayed for the longest time. My neighbor is probably thinking at this time "oh great...i'm living next to the trash collecting girl" LOL.
I have to admit after 4 months I began to doubt it would ever get done..I almost took it back to the alley, but last week it finally got completed!

I'm really excited with how it turned out. So THANKS! to my Mom, because I am clueless when it comes to recovering a chair, and thanks to my Aunt Deb who also came over to help out with the project. No one is a professoinal here, but over all it turned out super sweet and fits in perfect for my studio! (Which I hope to also be photographing in the near future and blogging). And it is surprisingly comfortable so if anyone wants to come work in my studio for an afternoon I now have a chair for them to sit in!

So funny - I've been known to treasure hunt too. The biggest piece I ever scarfed up was this huge wooden cabinet thing that I use as a potting bench. My girlfriend and I hauled that behemouth into the back of her truck in our work clothes (we work in a law firm). What a sight we must have made! All dressed up hauling this dirty spiderwebbed workbench. Yep, she's a good friend indeed who will help you garbage pick!

Love the chair - the black legs are genious!
