Design Time: Tag Sale Tips

This morning I had the pleasure of hosting Design Time on KWCH Channel 12 again. It's always great to see my good friend Kara Sewell, but even more fun to do these segments with her.  

This month was focused on Tag Sale Time. The weather is great, and everyone is itching to get out and find a good deal. Click on the video below to watch the segment, and see my before and after on these chairs below that. 

Warning - In the video, my voice makes a weird noise when pretending I'm on the phone. I promise I don't talk like that to my husband. (I have no explanation for this).
On the video segment I talked about this new website I found called YardSaleTreasureMap.com - type in your area, and watch all the sales pop up!

And, for the before and after on my new chairs...

This is what I started with. A metal yucky chair. Two things I loved about it = the metal bamboo that was asking to be lightened up, and the removable seat to recover! 
 I love seeing staples under a removable seat. This means I can do it all. by. myself. I used this seat as a pattern.
 Painted the chair with rust-oleum gold outdoor spray paint...
And ta-da! New chair is born. (Oh and I added piping to the bottom of the seat to make it look semi-professional.
