I Know I'm Being a Show-Off

Bear with me and try to understand why I'm being a bragger!

I see fabulous people do cool, crafty things all the time and think "Hey! I can do that, too!".

Then, one of two things happen. I buy all the supplies and then forget about them for a decade or so because they get shoved in a closet when company comes over.

Or, worse, I mutilate them in the process of attempting to be cool and crafty.

So, you can imagine my delight when, with the help of my husband, we recovered our dining room chairs. Okay.... technically my only part of this was buying the fabric on clearance at Jo-ann's and then needling my husband to actually do the recovering part. See, that's the beauty...I'm the VISIONARY....after all these years I finally understand that and now I have my own "before" and "after" pictures to proudly present:

BLAH! Stained and ripped:


Ahh.....clean and modern:

Looks great!

And I'm the visionary here too. In fact, I can easily envision at least three new projects a week for The Boss to take on. Just thought of one this a.m. while rocking Li'l Empress to sleep!
