Everyone should Garage-Sale!

My mother taught me the value of going to garage sales when I was a little girl. We'd all pile in the van and go "shopping" every Saturday in Oregon. Sometimes we wouldn't get anything . . . but a lot of the time we would come home with "new" toys, and other trinkets!

I still like getting up on Saturday to check out all the neighborhood garage sales - and so does my mom. So, when she came in August for Maejae's baby blessing, we decided to spend our Saturday morning driving around town looking for the best garage sales. Well, we didn't find too many - but we did come across an awesome project!

We bought a little chair for $2.00 (I didn't take any before pictures - dangit!) . . .

However, it had really nasty, soiled, all pink, fabric on it. So, we took it apart!

We cut up a bunch of fabric and re-upholstered the chair with Nathan's help!

(Please take note of my mom's bottom lip sticking out . . .

(And then my tongue sticking out - Like Mother/Like Daughter!)

And in the end, we made a beautiful chair to match Natalie's room!
She loves her new chair and reads in it every day for at least 30 minutes!

Thanks Grandma!!
