Hometalk anyone?

Hometalk is a fantastic site to find so many DIY tutorials and ideas, do you check it out often or have a page? I have only recently starting putting some of my work on the website as it is a great supporter of the Fab Furniture Flip Contest. Perhaps I should start using it more ;)

Feel free to leave your link in comments below, I would love to stop by!

Minted "Take A Seat" FFFC November challenge **PIC HEAVY**

November's Fab Furniture Flippin Contest challenge is called "Take A Seat" sponsored by Minted. This is going to be the most challenging contest for me as of yet as I am stepping out of the box and going to attempt to do a major upholstery project. Minted supplied fabric for each contestant, how fabulous! THANK YOU!

Minted has endless fabrics, I managed to get it down to 8 choices and chose this one in the end called "not your mamas paisley" in teal of course.
The chair I plan to do is a chair I bought at an estate sale of a family friend. I love the shape, swivel, softness this chair provides but it just is not current in my décor. It spends all its time hidden under a pretty throw. It is time to let it shine on it own.
I was so excited to open my Minted package, even to Canada it did not take long to arrive. My sweet daughter dropped it off along with a Tim Horton's pumpkin spice tea, delicious!  I threw the material over for a test run.... oooo pretty
