Purchased for $85. My husband and I spent an afternoon shining up the chrome with steel wool. I spent another $160 on the the faux cow hide and having a local upholsterer recushion it.

Doing my part to keep the economy going.

thanks, heidi. i only have the one. (first image is a before shot. i can relate to your excitement in overlooking that.)

when i told my older son i was covering it in cow hide, his reaction was, it would probably look best on a john waters set.

younger son hasn't seen it yet. if he shows the same distaste, then yes, i will put you in my will.

hi julie! thanks! i think it's pretty bad-ass myself. ;o)

this blog is my "live" photo album of sorts. occasionally, i'll throw in some art i've done or some work of my husband's as he's an artist as well. we have a nice yard in a quiet neighborhood with two pugs and a cat, all black. which most of my photos will attest too. ;) i'd love to hear from you, but happy for you to just browse. hope you find something to make you smile. b.
