so much progress!

Well we have made so much progress on the house! But we took on the garage which it is looking so great but more stuff came into the house to organize haha. so i still have that stuff more to do. I did how ever get to start on and finish a couple redos today. The hubs is gone for ten days so we will see how much more i get done ;).  Not sure if you remember that very mildewy free chair. well i finished it and have pictures to show.
Here it is :)

And here it was before 
I had to sand it down and clean the mildew off then remove all the rusty staples and pray i didnt stab my self!


Then i painted it white the sanded it and dinged it up... stabbed it with a screw driver.. hit it....
then used a glaze and sealed it with a rub on poly. I used a vintage burlap sack to recover it. I had to hand wash it and hang it out to dry first cause it was sooooo smelly!

  but it washed up great and im really happy how it turned out. Here are a few more pictures!


cruz wanted mommy to pick him up! (i did :) )
