$20.00 dollars and one black desk was all we had.
How far would we go to save a couple of bucks and furniture from the landfill?
Are you ready?
You sure you want to look?
Yep, this was the chair before. We know totally gross!
We completely stripped the chair, cleaned it and started from scratch.
We repurposed stuffing from extra bed pillows we had and found the Navy Blue fabric from the Thrift Store.
It is 100% Scratchy Polyester. Yep, just like Grandma wears!
No wonder it was only $1.00.
We cut fabric scraps to make a British Flag and used a picture we found on the Internet for the bulldog outline.
Debbie found the most amazing artwork. She has such a good eye! We have no idea who this number two person is but for only $7.00...SOLD. The Paris artwork was from a 25 cent album and we reused an existing frame. The bridge picture was $2.00 and the desk accessories combined were $8.00.
We had a whopping $1.75 left. So we used it very wisely and bought an old shop light from the Thrift Store and clamped it on to an existing camera tripod to make a lamp.
We had no money left. But we still needed something to the right of the desk. Then we had a light bulb moment. Ah Ha! A month ago we found an old ladder at the curb.
