A few finds

I went to an auction and a few yard sales and came across a few things i could not resist. I love sleds and toboggans and hope to do a display in my entryway this winter.  The smaller of the two has the original price tag on it and the store  it was bought from here in town has been closed for 25 years. I also picked up a few spools for a dollar apiece , suitcase for $5 and kitchen goodies total of $7.00.

Chair Makeover

I picked up this chair at an estate sale a while back and finally got around to give it a makeover. It didn't take much and I'm happy with the out come. First i had to get the old ripped leather seat off and all the broken tacks. After i got it all removed i was left with a hole in the center of the seat, I'm thinking there was an original wicker seat and when that wore out they replaced it with leather. I used murphy's oil soap and hot water and washed the chair a few times. As the chair was drying i drew out  the shape of the hole onto plywood and covered it with some upholstery i had.
