 so this chair was on the curb with a bug infested seat that was destroyed and nasty. so i took the seat off and tossed it .the wood was rotten and beyond saving.I cut a new seat out lof scrap mdf.covered with foam and upholstered it.then spent hours sanding off a really nasty varnish.painted and sealed it and voila! total price about 10 bucks for faberick and sealant everything else i had already.well thanks for looking guys  the discoloration is the flash not the paint

28  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / I need help finishing a dumpster table ideas?inspiration? on: August 27, 2008 01:23:39 PM
Ok so I got this out of the trash but someone had cut a giant hole in the center and put a really nasty piece of plywood in its place so I knocked out the board and painted it using interioe house paint that matches my bedroom walls now i cant figure what to put in the middle such limitless possibilities.the color doesnt show up very well in the pic but its a medium red with wood grain showing through so its very organic and natural look which I love! so any ideas you guys could give would be really appreciated.

Thanks a bunch for looking!  Huh

it was painted hot pink with the old green paint kinda showing from under the pink and it had a stained up orange vinyl seat.pretty gross looking.all i did was paint it black and re covered the seat.I used the fabric from and old shirt that would never ever be worn again but I really liked the fabric.
