Another make do finished:

Hi blog friends!

Here's another make do chair I finished up this weekend.
I think it's my favorite one yet!
I used an old sack to cover the back and used the excess to make the seat cushion.

I love the old mending spots and all the stains thru out the sack.
Gives it a time worn look.
Although the stains look bolder in the pics and not in person.

Guess what I made the sides from?

An old ironing board!
I split the top angled portion of the board in half!

Here's a view of the back.
See the old mending down to the right.

This one is going to be very hard to part with.

I have two more chairs to finish before the crawl and have a stack of sewing to get working on for the fall.

Never enough time in the day, is it!
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.
