Our first post!

What an eventful day. We started off with browsing through antiques and then walking around a flea market. We ended up buying a couple globes and another lamp to repurpose. We picked up some other supplies and went to work on a couple different projects. I am currently working on painting a globe and Dobby is working on a couple different lamps. In addition to our own projects, we have been working on coasters made out of maps.

In the midst of it all, we decided to tackle our biggest project yet – a reupholster. We bought a huge chair and ottoman a couple weeks ago and decided it was time to jump into the project. First, we started with the ottoman and it turned out great. Then, we started on the chair. I hate the chair a lot more now then when we started. We ran into a little trouble with cutting and making every piece fit together. But, we did it!

And after all that fun and excitement, we decided it was time to document our journey through the wonderful world of DIY. And that is why we started this blog. We may not have a whole lot of experience, but we are usually good for a laugh or two along the way.

We hope you find either inspiration or humor as you read our posts.
