So I have been helping a friend pack and plan their next move as they travel with her husbands job and the more we thought about it the more we dreaded that trip to find furniture for taking with them. Then is dawned on is the only reason she didn't like the furniture sitting in her garage that was planned for craigslist was the unstained wood look she wanted something finished that she could wipe off her kids messes and go on with life. Sooo a trip to Lowes and 24 hours later we were in her garage while the kids rode bikes staining away with neighbors coming over asking what we were up to and telling us we were crazy. On we went a dining room set and an entertainment center later we are in love with what we accomplished and the results, AND WE SAVED A TON OF MONEY! We even got adventurous and recovered the seats to her kitchen table in less than 3 hours.
So this is what her garage looked like for 3 days while we worked on it all between Dr apts and running errands and trying to get our phones fixed with 6 kids in tow under the age of 8.
And here are some before and afters
And I will add pictures of the entertainment center and reupholstered chairs later when I remember to snag a shot.
