My New Project: Furniture!

So i have fallen in love with taking old furniture and reworking it into brand new. I have found I am pretty good at it. I just finished a few wooden chairs and have moved on to a few metal chairs. What a difference. With metal I have to deal with rust but the paint has been coming off easy. The wooden chairs I have had sticky gooey paint and one had dry paint when I applied the paint remover. Home Depot is my toy store. Now i get to by all this fun stuff. I'm looking at learning how to recane chairs as well. Working with my hands is such a fun way to release crearive energy. I will keep you updated on the adventures.

You know you’re a crafter when……..

  • You know the craft store better than the sales associate

  • You direct other customers to the brads

  • You enter the store with a list of 5 items and leave with 10, just cause you know you would need it later

  • You buy Christmas decorations in July

  • You go to 3 different stores to find the right black spray paint

  • You buy sale items just because their on sale
