Before and After

My parents were just here visiting and my dad is like me, (or rather, I'm just like him) and likes to keep busy, so I had a list of projects just waiting for him. This is one of them. Since my dad restores furniture for a living, I acquire a ton of antiques. This is one that I've had for awhile. Part of me liked the vintage charm, but the other part of me wanted something that fit more my husband and I. Since we always have easy access to coffee bags, I thought that this would be a different way to use them than what I usually see. Maybe now the chair needs to be painted a nice slate blue. Of course my father would shudder if I even mention it, so for now it stays as is and I'm happy with the makeover!
