Metamorphis Monday - I'm Flexible!

You know you're flexible when you can buy Halloween & Christmas decor in the same place. My wonderful Goodwill store is just starting to put out the Christmas decor. Even though I have too many Rubbermaid containers with Christmas decorations in our storage unit, that doesn't mean I'm not always on the look for more.

On Saturday, I found this brown metal cart for $3. I knew I could update it with spray paint. (When I put this in my cart, a lady in the store gave me one of those looks - you know - "Why in the world would you want that piece of junk look!)

I spray painted it pink and will be on my covered deck next year with flowers and vintage finds.(DH thought the table was perfectly fine in brown - interesting.)

It even folds in half, we think it might have come from a hospital? Anyway - I think it's sooo cute!

And I've been reading all of your blogs where you've changed the fabric on your chairs. So I bought some fabric almost a month ago and today DH and I updated our chairs. I knew the chairs were getting dirty but I didn't realize how bad they had become.

And here's the after - the fabric does have small moss green dots in the pattern. I plan on recovering the pillows in the living room in the future.

Check out this outside metal snowman - $3 and it looks brand new.

Be sure to head over to Between Naps on the Porch for more Metamorphis Monday posts.

PS - I'm on vacation tomorrow - I can't decide if I should go visit Goodwill again or not....DH - what do you think?

Our dining room chairs are rosewood with black seats and I've always wanted to cover the seats with a new fabric. Hmmmm....Maybe I should put it on my ToDo list!

You did a great job on the chairs. I covered my chair seats several years ago - they turned out very nice and made a big difference in the room. Had a cramp in my hand from the staple gun for several days, but that is ok. :) Have4 a great week.

I have no idea why there is a 4 after have - just ignore it. Past my bedtime. :)

I love the cart you found for $3.00. It looks "pretty in pink"....the chairs look wonderful updated in the red fabric! You have been one busy lady!

To answer your question about the Rub N Buff...I have used it on wood and glass so far with great results. I hope that helps you out some :o)
