Updating an old 1800's French sofa to the 2013 version using paint, grain sacks, and drop cloths for upholstery! It retains the "frenchy" feel but in a more relaxed casual way! We invite you to come visit for a closer look!
Everyone was really helpful with my chaise lounge color, I'm hoping to get your creative input for a wooden crate I bought just because it was cool. It appears to be a very sturdy, old
military shipping piece. Medical stuff. It measures 30" x 17 x 15. I thought maybe a table, but I'm not feeling any good ideas yet. Maybe you all could let me know if you have ever done one like or have seen one finished up. Took pics.
I picked up a 'leather' looking chair someone had put out next to the road. It was beautiful burgundy on rollers. I stopped and loaded it in the back of my truck on my way to work. Didn't
notice the smell till I unloaded it much later at home. I have tried window cleaner, orange oil cleaner, Pine Sol, leather cleaner, dish soap and have stopped short of bleach. NOTHING is working! I have the chair out on my covered porch and when it is really humid or rainy the smell about gags me. REALLY hate to pitch it, there just has to be something else I haven't tried yet. Any suggestions???
