Remember how I said I can re-purpose anything? Well, watch and learn.
Oh the joys of living beside an apartment complex.....another dumpster find.
Just a slight rip in the seat should be easy to recover, right?
Not when the frame is completely broken in two.....
So here is what I am left with. Recognize any of those projects in the background from previous posts? I told you that we were busy :)
HMMMM, what if I turn it over?
And make it a laundry hamper (or storage container, toy box, you name it).
Using that previous living room curtain fabric, I basically sewed a tall box with the right side on inside so I could flip it outward.
Now can you see what I did? I doubled the bottom over to keep from cutting it, so it is wrong sides together, a double layer.
Then we decided to go ahead a cover the other laundry baskets too, we had plenty of the fabric. And remember I said in an earlier post, I have so much fabric, there should be nothing "ugly" in my house. :) Not even my laundry hampers.
I didn't bother to cover the bottom on these, and only went down so deep with the fabric on the inside to keep from cutting it. Who knows, maybe I WILL want to re-use it again one day.
So there they are....nice and pretty. Oh yeah, we decided to recover the ironing board too. Why not?
