    My sewing area redo!

    When I first began quilting, just a few weeks ago, I set up a portable table and sat on the sofa in the back den (former sleeping porch). Not very comfortable, and the table wobbled when I sewed. So this week I snagged a chair at Goodwill, repainted and recovered, and swiped the desk from the kids' room that they don't use much. So much better! It just makes me smile.

    The chair redo is awesome! Looks like you are setting the stage for future real estate takeover, too.
