WHAT HAVE I BEEN UP TO???

This chair was curb side, waiting for the trash, so I rescued 2 of them, sanded them and...
took off their seats and got the handy dandy Black spray paint and let the change begin...

This very pretty fabric,a garage sale find this summer is perfect, and I'm loving the staple gun...
Now I have 2 pretty chairs to sale at the booth.. :)
Look at this "MESS" ..it's where I am stamping cards and altered cigar boxes and note books for a craft show that I'm going to try in October. I hope I will make enough for all the customers and MORE important, I hope it all SELLS. It's my first try at a craft show.
This is a card that I'm making for a card swap that I do each month. There are 8 of us and these gals have great cards. I hope each month that mine isn't the "ugly" one....Here they are, all finished and ready to go. Oh, yes, the "theme" for September is .."FALL"
I hope you enjoyed my little projects. I'm trying to do something each day. I'm working on October's cards, which will be ....Yes, Halloween. I have a few ideas, nothing that has come together, yet. Thanks for visiting my dear blogging friends . Happy Wednesday. Warmly, Deb

I love your chair makeovers!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am glad you liked the dishwasher panles I got at the Home Depot. They cost ~ $20 a panel.

Hope that helps!

Deb, that is a great chair makeover. I love it! And I highly doubt that your cards would be the "ugly ones". I have one remember? I think it is fantastic, just as those Autumn themed ones are :0). You are a talented "card maker".

The chair makeovers look wonderful! Most everyone can use extra seating for holiday gatherings so they should sell quickly.
Thanks for sharing everything.
