In the family

Once upon a time 30+ years ago my sweet dad built my lovely mother a very solid hutch.
Mom and Dad

This hutch was always a fixture some where in our family home through out the years.

My older sisters (pictured above), and they are oooollllllddddd now so that gives you an idea of how long this guy has been around.
Some time in my late teens, this hutch became mine. This large, heavy piece has traveled to over a dozen homes, and has been several colors over the years.
Well we just moved to a smaller home and I did not want to get rid of it. So I turned it into our new/old entertainment cabinet. I love the way this turned out.

I painted the back black to blend the TV.
Thanks for stopping by.


I see red

I love my  new neighborhood, people just give a way their furniture all of the time. I just came across this lovely lady on a walk and had to get it, and again it was FREE!!!!!!!! YAY! for FREE!

It was a nice and simple redo, but I love it!

Have a good one.

The Cadillac

I did it, I bought a four seater stroller. YIKES!!!!
It is the only way to get som exercise. So I found this beauty on good ole CL.
the picture does not show how nasty this thing was.

I really want to learn to sew and reupholster, so I thought this would be a great item to practice on. So I completely took the stroller apart and had at it.

 After many many hours of sewing and mistakes and cutting and re sewing, I think she turned out all right,(far from perfect) but all right.

Have a great Sunday
