FREE FREE FREE


I received this chair
from a nice lady on Freecycle.
It is need of some TLC, new fabric that is.
Chair is very sturdy and I love the style.
I am just trying to decide what type of fabric to do it in.

My sofa is a blue and white check, so maybe the chair would look good in a blue and yellow.


Anyway, this is my first attempt upholstering a piece
I will post the finished work when it is completed.


If you have never been to the Freecycle in your area, you can find it by going through Yahoo groups. This is a place where everyone gives away their items instead of filling our landfills. I have given away many things and also have received many items. It is a great way to recycle. Help our Earth. Give it a try.
The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,299 groups with 4,721,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer (them's good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on “Browse Groups” above the search box. Have fun!

How interesting. The chair will be lovely when it is re-covered. That reminded me that my mother and I recovered two chairs almost 40 years ago. I thought we did a very good job. I would never have tackled it if she had not been there to help me. It extended the life of the chairs many more years. I hadn't thought about that in a long time.
Thank you for the nice comments you made on my post today. Being a pastor's wife for 50 years was not always easy, but it was always fulfilling and I never regretted it for a minute. I always felt like that was where God wanted me to be. It just went by too fast.
Hugs and Blessings to you.
