Hostel situation

Why haven't you been posting
I'm in a hostel. I was trying to find accommodations while I'm over here.
That's been keeping you from posting?
Yes. Yes it has. But I'm probably moving in to the new place tomorrow
So you'll start posting then
Well, I'm not sure what the internet situation is going to be
So... you know nothing and there's no real timeframe for starting up again
Basically
So what DO you know?

Hows about some original new fresh content?

Someone was throwing away this perfectly good chair frame. So into the house it went.

The shape of things to come.

There. That's quite the improvement.

Check out that sweet sweet shape.

Even the back is pretty cool.

I'm considering this a work in progress still. The arms and legs are a bit worn, so restaining the whole thing is in the works... eventually. And is this a DIY? well no. I owe a huge debt of thanks to my aunt Rita, who sewed the cushions, and did a hundred other things to make it this improved.

  1. That's a nice looking chair that someone threw out. It will come up a treat with a light sand and danish oil.x

  6. Hey all you new readers! New material will be up soon.

    @ Rachel, I think it's from the late 1950s. I wasn't able to figure out exactly, but that's my best guess.
