Trash to treasure!

Irisa Raina 9


After many years of telling my husband, if you see something thrown to the curb and it has possibilities STOP AND PICK IT UP!

Well he came home with these two treasures, boy were they in bad shape!

I finally decided to make them Halloween chairs " I am a total Halloween and Christmas freak".

The finish product's had a place in our home till one of my grand-babies came over to go trick and treating, and needless to say they both ended up going home with her. I mean how can a grannie say no when she say's oh grandma I just love these!!!!!
