some house projects

we have had sofa chair in our office for the past few years.  we got our first one sitting next to the trash bin outside of our apartment.  I know, a little gross.  we kept it for about four years until we upgraded to a new next-to-trash sofa chair that looks a lot less disgusting.  So much so that I might one day forget where we got it and actually sit on it!  It looks great really, and John did a great job vacuuming and washing it.  Hooray for dumpster diving.  we have quite the collection.

we spent the past weekend in Tampa with some friends.  more on that later.  But my friend April and I went thrift shopping.  Now I love a good thrift store, and so does April.  So needless to say we fed off of each others eagerness to turn frumpy finds into our next home goods! 

this tray was $3, and just needed some updating.  Scrapbook paper is a cure-all

mwaahh!  I cannot wait to show you more of our recent projects.  John has been so wonderful working in this heat!

love the tray. You are so crafty. I still think you could make a profit from your hobby. Maybe a site on Etsy?

This is so great! I am currently repainting a tray that looks just like this one to post on my blog. I've been thinking of using paper (there's a split in the wood). Yours looks great! So glad I stumbled upon your blog!
