can you believe when I showed up to my first day of training I was scheduled to do PD
and I didn't know it...
I had on my calendar... next week
my principal had confidence in me and I whipped up a 2 hour PD in NO time and only my best buds and the Principal knew :) HA!!!
and it was pretty fab if I do say so...
I still have to teach PD next week though
Monday - Thursday I am doing writing PD...
well that was my start to the year...

I have been in PD everyday since

INTRODUCING... my previously made over chair....
here is the story ...
a few years ago I recovered this chair...
I felt guilty that my whole room was girly and so I decided to cover it in this...


yep racecars... nice right????
and here is the back!!!


so anyways... I am over it and ready to girly it up so
first things first
I removed the back!!!

and observed how many staples I used before...
HOLY COW... staples must have been on sale or something...
WOWZERS
alrighty so apparently I skipped a few steps in the pics...
I know I got all of the 5,003 staples out and then recovered the back in pretty fabric
and way less staples
and then I worked on the front...
front is done...  what do ya think...


and once again I skipped a ton of steps .... 
hubs helped me attach the front to the base and the back to the front and 
WHA LAAAAA
it is done...

I left the seat bottom the same...
it is grey black denim and is very durable and has about 7,003 staples in it so it stayed!!!

well I am probably the last person to link up but I GOTS TO... Tara has been my bloggy buddy for a long time :)

head on over there and see all the great stuff people are craft-n

  1. oooh, I love presents we buy ourselves!

    The chair is totally cool. I can't decide if I like the race cars or the paisley better. I'll go with paisley, since you probably don't want to take all those staples about again. ;)

  6. Love the new look for the chair! I'm also kind of jealous of your Birchbox. Mine wasn't quite as exciting this month, but I got the same perfume and I'm loving that at least. :)
