... and in with the new.
I am on a small cleaning spree. I gave away my cooking books, 17 of them, the old digital hand me down camera, and reupholstered two bar stools all through Freecycle. I feel so much lighter, and the house feels lighter too.
Hubby says giving away the cooking books is sacrilegious. Who needs cooking books when you can get recipes online? I have a collection of recipes that I have compiled, and they are safely on the computer. All I kept were two cooking books, The Joy of Cooking and The Fannie Farmer Cookbook. Truth be told, I have not used a single recipe out of these two books. I guess, when it's my turn to do Thanksgiving, I might just have to crack one of these open. I have my fingers crossed that Thanksgiving does not ever end up at our house
So for the two bar stools that we got, we reupholstered them. All you need is a staple gun and staples. We used 1/2" staples because the 1/4" did not go through to the wood. We used vinyl for the fabric. We wrapped the vinyl fabric on top of the original one and stapled away.
