Thrifty Life Thursday #37 with Features from Last Week!

My next projects...two French chairs. 

Any sewing people want to barter to make drop cloth 
slip covers for the two chairs below? (Just the seat part.)

I have lots of fun junk to trade for your sewing skills...just let me know.

This week's features from last week's party:

Sharon from The Blue Willow House shared some very cool thrifty treasures, and the one that caught my eye was a brass barrel side table.
(I just saw a similar one at Of course, she had to put some elbow grease into it (and gold rub'n buff) to get it to look like the photo below...but it was a great deal. 

Brass Stool foyer

Erica and Hanna from The Adventures of Two (Pyrex Crazy) Thrifting Sisters shared a boat load of vintage mostly kitchen goodness. I learned more about Pyrex while visiting them...always a good thing to know your vintage stuff if you frequent thrift stores! Thanks, ladies.

Jann from Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson shared her fall front porch, which is chock full of great ideas and fall vignettes. She uses her vintage goodies in all of them in very creative ways. It was hard to decide what photo to use!

      Thanks for hosting again this week, Revi! I hope you find somebody to barter with for chair slipcovers! I'd like to make some for my own, but I've never made them before, so I keep postponing the project.

      Great features!

      Hi Revi ... hope you find someone to make new cushions for your pretty chairs. I love to barter ... once, I had two ladies paint my laundry room walls and I was setting up for a garage sale. I bartered to one lady enough from my garage to cover her charges. My lucky day. Keep trying, I know you will find someone. Love your features this week and thanks for hosting the fun party.
