Motivation Monday - Re-Purpose Projects

This Saturday is the 18th Annual Popplewood 4-H Ringle Harvest Day.  I have been digging, washing and marking items to take.  In the pile I have set aside was this cute crackly mint green stool.  The way it was I might have put $7.50 on it.  I tipped it over and thought how easy it would be to recover the seat.  I had a piece of fabric from the recent estate sale I went to and thought it would look nice, so I used it.  

I left it crackly - I think it turned out nice.  Now I marked it $25.

I also had this table from the estate I bought out in June.  The gentleman used it as a work shop table.  It was ugly.  I took a piece of burlap and stapled it to the top.  I didn't like the staples so I covered it with this roll of brass knobby tape thing - you nail it down - used in upholstery.  Before, I would have marked the table $15, after, because I really like it as a desk....I'm marking it $55.  

So, this Monday - for my motivation - I looked at some items I normally would have just sold cheap - and decided to re-purpose them.  Now, I am pleased with what I accomplished and if they don't sell - I won't mind, because I like them.

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
