33 NEW POSTS!!!!

That's right I've caught up the blog with
33 new posts!!!!
To start at the beginning go back to the "Disneyland" post.
Don't be scared...some of them just have pictures so you don't have to read!

Chair makeover

Chairs are expensive...did you know that? So when you build a table that needs TEN chairs that will cost you TONS of money right??? Nope, it doesn't have to. It will take A LOT of BLOOD, sweat and tears!
Here is what the chairs looked like.....

And here is the after.....

We went with a distressed look to match our rustic farm table.
We paid $37.50 for the 10 chairs at "Restore" and about $40 on the materials for the redo. That makes it less than $10 a chair. Not too bad!

We LOVE Hailey!!!
