Take a seat...

What I am about to show you
was supposed to be
my maiden voyage into

Upcycling

for

Ebay selling!

But typical of me,
I may have to keep it!

I bought this tatty old
Child's Chair
for my dabble at trying to
make some money to feed
my 'thrifting' habit...



Took off the ripped fabric
and the broken base.



Gave it a lick of paint,
and a fresh new fabric cushioned seat...

...and fell in love.



Well wouldn't you?









So there we go,
something else to clutter up my house.

Unless...

...I can force myself and actually
sell something for once!

Love Claire. x

Its very lovely and I can see why you want to keep it.

However try selling - than by another & do the same.

I'm the same, always buying things to sell on but they just seem to find a home :) I think you should sell :)
