This old trunk. Oh, I wish it could talk so we could hear the stories of little boys and all their toys!
A good friend was readying her house to sell at retirement. Myself and several friends were helping her clean out and pack her kitchen. In the midst of our time together she asked if anyone would like to have this old trunk.
It was a mess of dried out wood, dust and some fading gold paint covering red paint over the metal pieces. Another friend saw potential and asked me to sand it, stain it and paint the metal black.
Here it is… Repaired & Restored to a coffee table.
My Old Quiet Time Chair - Resurrected
This old faded plaid chair is my beloved quiet time chair. Oh if this chair could talk…
I didn’t want to give it away or sell it. It’s the “just right” chair, but visually unappealing.
I contacted several reupholstery referrals. All very kind and highly recommended, however, I could not afford their services.
And then I contacted a long time friend and previous Bible teacher. Rumor had it she was reupholstering furniture as a hobby in retirement.
Bravely, timidly, I asked… could I help you renovate one of my own chairs? Could I be your apprentice?
