Apple Picking and Craigslist

Happy Friday!  What do apple picking and craigslist have in common?  Well, nothing.  But we did both yesterday. Let me back up a bit.  I had been looking at wingback chairs on craigslist to reupholster and put into my dining area turned kid-friendly play area.  No, you can’t have too many kid-friendly areas in your house, especially with a growing family like our own.  Then, just the other day, I stumbled upon a few “beauties” that were just the right price-a whopping 25 buckaroos for the pair.  Better yet, they were conveniently on our way home from apple picking.

Here are the photos the posting provided: 
 

They are, in a word, scary.  Let's just say the camera "loved" them in these photos.  But, with a little (ok a LOT) of TLC and elbow grease they have the potential to be truly beautiful.  At least that's my goal anyway.  How about a little pinterest inspiration....you in?
 
I love how they decided to use two fabrics to cover this one...how creative! 
 
And the pink and white combo on this one is so pretty...love the ikat design too. 
 
And polka dots are always a personal favorite....
 
And I have a new obsession for nail head trim...will probably incorporate that somehow on mine...
 
Stay tuned for my before and after shots!  Have a great weekend!
