The Chair of Hope

I was feeling a little discouraged a couple of weeks ago because there is so much I would LOVE to do around our place, but we just don't have the finances to do it.  BUT maybe we can after all!!!!  A few Sunday mornings ago Micah was sick so we didn't go to church.  I had to work that day, but before I went in we decided to take Micah on a walk outside.  As we were leaving we walked by a few dumpsters and sitting outside was this sweet little old chair.  I was SO excited I ran and grabbed it right then and put it inside of our door until we got back from our walk...after all, I didn't want someone else to take it!! It seriously made my whole week.  It was better then buying a chair because I got to creative and make it my own.  Thank You Lord!!!!!  I know it was from Him. :)  Here my the process of renewing the chair:

This is how it looked when I picked it up

Took off the upholstery and bought the materials I needed for the project: Sandpaper, Spray Paint, Material, Quilt Batting

Sanded the chair down

Primer (Had to relocate to my parents backyard)

Taadaaaa! All finished (with some help from my amazing parents!)

It now sits in our bedroom. Loved. <3
