Chair for Charity Creation

Here she is! All done! The old chair that's been sitting in my basement for two years - add some paint and exterior clear coat, a few bits n bobs and you have yourself a fab little welcoming centre good for all seasons. Swap the plants out for hardy greens or ivys in the summer months and it's just a fun little piece! Kids Campaign for the local YMCA. Local businesses sponsor a chair to be re-purposed or revamped, then they are auctioned off to the public to help fund the program. Brilliant fun idea. This is my donation this year. For non stop repurposing fun and ideas, follow here and over at facebook. www.facebook.com/gypsybarn
