The good news is that most of my belongings are out of my parent's house and into my roomy 750 square foot apartment. I'm planning on showing it all to you, as I'm working hard slip covering my couch (a project I don't think I'll ever undertake again), but for now all I'm sharing are my refinished Craigslist chairs.
These babies were in pretty rough shape when I got them. The strange gold-leafed finish had worn through in some areas showing naked wood, and in others had an awful green tinge. The fabric also had some wear, and was a strange faux velvet mess. And all that was just the outside of the chair--the seat had to be completely re-webbed as the original webbing was made of some type of coated material which had become very brittle with age. I replaced it all with the wide jute used especially for seats. Now there's now concern of falling through!

|Look at that pattern matching! (and ignore my visible mess)|
Next up on my to do list is to finish my couch slipcover, skirt my media table, get some artwork done for the apartment, annnnnnnnd make my way through my UFO pile in my fabric bin as well as do some alterations. And I only have twenty days to do it all before school consumes my life! Where did the summer go?
