She's Got Those Beyonce Legs

And I have a feeling if I stick her on the back burner like I've done some of my other projects she might just use them to kick me where the sun don't shine!

I bought fabric a couple of weeks ago for $3.50 a yard out of the remnant bin @ Hancock Fabric. Straight CRACK (highly addictive) right?! I purchased what they had left.

I bought this fabric online for $5 a yd. I need like 2 more yards, but it has went up to $10 a yd. I'm just gonna bite the bullet. Yeah I'm cheap like that..you gotta know how I roll by now.

I'm thinking flower on the front & seat, tiger in the back on 4 of the chairs. The other two end chairs will get tiger in the front and seat and possibly some other fabric in the back. How wild is that?! And I'll be putting the nail head back in place too.
Here is a pic of all SIX chairs in my basement. I know ya'll see that freakin sofa back there..smh, a dang<--substitute bad word there, shame. Imma get a handle on this madness.

Here is the picture the seller had posted. $50 for the table and 6 chairs!!

I wanted to show you the legs to the table. Thicker than a snicker sweety! And as for the top, the leaf folds in underneath!

Don't worry. This project will get all my attention this week. I'm thinking extremely light beige paint on the wood. Here are the chairs I bought a couple of months ago for $80...yeah using them is out the window. I'm still going to re-do them and selling them though. My current dining table set will hit the market asap.

I'm sure you are like "Someone call Hoarders!!", but I swear I'm finally getting this craziness under control. I'll have some progress to show finally. And I'll be showing the step by steps of this table project as well as others. My heart is all in it on this one!
p.s. I'm sorry I've been neglecting my blog. My babies (kiddos not furniture) need me now. They are having a hard time coping with the ole ball & chain not being here. I hope you understand. I'm finding a balance now.
Also hit up Dayka's give away!! Just don't leave a comment, you'll be lessening the chances of me winning the custom stamp!! I kid, I kid..ok not really.
