It Takes a Village…

Okay….FINALLY I have taken some photos…granted they are not great….one day it was too sunny….one day not sunny enough….but I digress and I just took some flippin pictures so ya’ll will know that I am not just sitting around eating bon bons and watching soap operas all day…..(I wish)…

Dining room chairs and rug before…dark’ish…when I was covering these seats in my upholstery class, my instructor, Gary, whom I do love and adore, looked at this fabric and said, “I hate that fabric.”  The man does not mince words….I think he would like them better now….
