Shabbified and Pretty!

This once very sad looking rocking chair was pulled off a rubbish pile waiting to be burned. With a bit of elbow grease and creativity it has been lovingly transformed into a beautiful piece that now sits in a little girl's "shabby" style bedroom.

pofolksdecorator1 writes: The rocker is beautiful! Could I ask your advice? Are their legitimate grants avail for starting a small business? I want to build a playhouse in my backyard, 12x12 on the alley. They cost 5,000. I hear that people could get grants for this type of thing. Should I just make business cards and work out of the house? Ebay is another option... any ideas? Thanks, Annie Posted: 6:42 pm on March 17th
