This self-imposed bathroom deadline (that I didn’t quite meet) got me to thinking . . . maybe these deadlines/goals/whatever you want to call them could be used to help me finish up all these pesky little projects that I always start and NEVER FINISH! So September is bringing a new project/goal/deadline.
Purchased in 2007. Yup, 2007 and festering in the basement. With matching ottoman all for the low,low price of $30.
Poor thing hasn’t seen the light of day for five years. That should be illegal – chairs have feelings too.
So this is my September project: MCM Chair & Ottoman Restoration. Here’s what it needs:
1) Tung oil frames (they are sanded to bare wood currently)
2) New straps like we did to the Baumritter chair
3) New Upholstery! — This is the step I’m a little nervous/excited about. Not only am I going to make a box pillow cover with welting, I’m going to tackle zippers too!!!
Step One is already underway and the fumes are beginning to drift up to the main floor. . . .
