A lil Something for Gracie's Victorian Rose

As usual, I forgot to take a before photo of my latest Thrift Store find. Duh!
This is my old~new & improved step ladder chair.....
It is one of those mid 1970's Kitchen step ladder seats. It was dirty and had nasty vinyl upholstery....but for $4.95 I could not pass it up!
Then I bee-lined it over to Hobby Lobby and found this cool faux tooled faux leather, just needed about $5.00 worth.....
After giving the seat/ladder a good scrubbing I went to work. I did need handsome hubby's help to take the seat & back apart. My Hero!
After cutting, gluing & re-attaching I now have a toteable step ladder that does double duty as an extra chair.
Now to just get my old Aljo put back together,,,oh wait, I also need to finish up trailer #3.
Thank goodness the Scotty is road ready! lol!

  1. You are taking me down memory lane, Grace. I think most of us (of my generation anyway) had one of these. Cool find! Cyndy #841
