Received a vintage Singer sewing machine as a birthday gift from a contractor who was preparing to remodel a client's basement. It had been sitting for years and was going to be thrown out as trash. Thankfully he saved it for me and I fell in love with it immediately.
What a project! Took an originally beautiful decorative chair that was destined for the trash, but decided to give it some love and attention instead. Now I am so proud of it. The best part---I did it all without sewing a thing!
My son recently purchased a home and was in desperate need of furniture, but was on a tight budget. I usually frequent the Goodwill for slightly used furniture, but I found these four chairs sitting "outside" the Goodwill on the sidewalk. Apparently they weren't good enough to even make it inside. They called out to me to be rescued,
