What's old and new (Testament, that is) is new again

Old religious book pages, along with an old chair, get a heavenly new life! The black and white pages were used to cover a vintage Queen Anne chair and a huge, high back was added (made of wood) to give it a regal look. A bookstore displayed it in their window (surrounded by religious books) -- it received its share of hallelujahs. I pray I can find a wonderful new home for it, as I have moved on to other projects. Amen!

I advertised it as a homemade Alice in Wonderland chair and the woman who bought it collects all things related to Alice in Wonderland. Posted: 4:17 pm on March 9th

Buyologist writes: Thank you, everyone. Junkermidge: I forgot to take pictures of it when it was in the bookstore! Probably would have only gotten my reflection anyway. So...what to do with the chair now. I've enjoyed it a long time and it's so huge I need to find a new home for it! Maybe I can sell it at the flea market! Posted: 11:00 pm on February 9th
