Uncovering and Redoing The Past

The original chair was the yellow plastic Early American design, purchased 30+ years ago for $5 at a thrift store. The first recover was the brown print, then the blue quilted material. It has been enjoyed by daughter, Mary Ann, Cats: Sydney, Lovey, Simon, Stewart and Bob, 6 grandchildren, and granddog, Lola. This is the youngest granddaughter relaxing in the latest renovation to jade corduroy this Christmas.
