Happy dance

A couple of days ago,
my Husband told me that the garage was starting to look emptier...

♪♫♪ Music to my ears ♪♫♪

The loud,
happy music...
and my happy,
happy feet
took me back to the garage
where I found this...

....ugly, ugly thing.




just waiting for a face lift!






The happy dance made me tired...



but there is no time to rest...
I'm on a roll!!


I have a lot more junk treasures to work on!!

What's making you dance today??

I can dance the "happy dance" because I can see the top of my desk and surrounding work tables. I also found past due bills, but hey, I'm still dancing!!

Take care, Sue

What a sweet makeover. Your 'feet' picture cracked me up. Just yesterday I was thinking about taking a picture of my feet while we are driving down the highway...me in the back seat...my feet on the console...and my hubby rubbing them...as we drive, drive, drive all over the country doing quilt shows. Thanks for giving me permission!!

Kids first day of school :)
That would make any mom dance though! Too bad it's soooo hot - maybe we'd feel like working on a project as well!! Love the stool!

Your ottoman turned out great-I love transforming things-it's so exciting!

You used some really pretty fabric on that stool, love it. Don't you just love when you can do the happy dance, I know I do.

That's a wonderful new cover for the ottoman. I especially like how you used the cutwork edge. So white chic!

Now that's a sweet makeover. That first material somehow looks very familiar. :/ Definitely something from the past. I'll be doing a happy dance when tomorrow comes because then the weekend begins. One week of back to school work under my belt. :) Best wishes, Tammy

Well ~ I dropped my girl off at college today and am a bit sad but am doing the happy dance because with all her "stuff" gone I can now re-do the room it was all packed in!!

What is making me dance is the temp outside "74" this morning when I woke and no humidity! Hurricane Earl is blowing it away!!
I so love your foot stool and the fabric on it is really nice!
Thanks for your visit to my blog today and you enjoy your week..

Lovely make over! I love ottomans or made over foot rests, benches. And I love white covering with lace insets.
Hope you have lots of time to put your feet up!

I feel like doing the happy dance with you, what a nice feeling. Your bench looks so much better. I used the "before" fabric a long time ago for something... :) Thanks for linking.
