Was that a pretty good SOS?
I am really good in the kitchen, I am really good at cleaning when I want to be, I am great at taking tests, smart, and no.. this is not a plea for you to pop my ego.
I really fail at being “cute” and “Creative”
By this I mean.. I would be living in a house with nothing but white walls on a metal frame if it were not for my husband. He is the one with the family photos up, pictures of us, nice bed, decor that looks like it goes together..etc. I am going to chalk it up to he is turning 30, and I am 25? Young? Maybe? No.. I know.
I really just do not have an “eye” for anything that is esthetically pleasing. I can not look at a house and create a room full of color, textures, decorative things, etc. I seriously look at a room and wonder why people spend so much effort into decorating. I mean do not get me wrong. I appreciate it, I would love to do it, I am just well, lost.
I can sew, and I am pretty good at doing that by hand, with my machine, or my Serger. ( I made my husbands Costume for our runDisney Half this year – here ) but getting to that point of creativity took about as much work as training for the half marathon itself.
If you follow me on Instagram…. things like this happen a lot.
Yep. So we had a table and chairs that we got for free, and well 3/4 chairs have slowly broken down over the last 3 years. They are so long over due…Anyways- my husband reads my blog and follows me on social media…so for his enjoyment, and now yours. While I laid there in pain- I decided I needed to share. It was that or stand up. Standing up was not going to happen. So picture it was.
I am really accident prone, klutzy, whatever. This does not surprise my family or friends in anyway, yet I am always surprised when something happens to me.
So this is my project
I am terribly frugal- which may be why I do not decorating, I would rather use all my money for Disney or a vacation ANYWHERE. Instead of using it on a decorative item. Well chairs are needed. I literally have two chairs left. Both are broken, it is only a matter of time before something happens to me, I mean them. Also I have NO where for anyone to sit, therefore I am not inviting people over at all!
I picked these chairs up a few weeks ago at a thrift store that is free here, to have as a project to keep busy when things slow down after the holidays. Well now.. Now i need chairs.
Where you come in.
I am going to do some searching for DIY, etc. There are so many blogs out there with talented people cranking out gorgeous things like this every day. I am not one of those bloggers. I just need help finding those bloggers. Or tell me what fabric you like/would work, or anything really. I am open for suggestions, tips, etc. I have a dark mahagony stain I was given to by my friend.. (so far this project is 100% free) and yeah.. That about covers it..
