Another Small Transformation

TGIF!  
I am so happy that we finally have rain and a break from this unbearable heat.  It was a welcome sound when I woke up this morning to the pitter patter of raindrops.

I am also happy because I get to go into Walker Elementary and begin the staging process of the teachers lounge.

The cabinets for the kitchenette are done but we are still waiting for the counter tops.  

I wanted to show you another set of chairs that we refurbished.
The before...


The chair had a hard, dark finish.  You could hardly see the wood grain.  The fabric on the chair, well, can I just say UGLY!

Then we began to work on them..
Days and days of work.  Stripping the chair...sanding...re-stripping..sanding..I think you get the picture.

After all that, here is what they look like today



Didn't they come out beautiful?  I love them.
I think the teachers at Walker Elementary will love them as well.

When I began talking about the teacher's lounge I had a whole lot of inspiration from different sources.  One of those sites came from Design Sponge.

Look at these chairs I found on her site and was inspired to take on the challenge of the ones I showed above.

The After..

Gorgeous!

I will post more here next week and will show you what was accomplished today.

Have a great weekend : )
