{Drab to Fab!}

A few months ago, I found this chair for $1 at a yard sale and I've had it sitting in my living room ever since. Please note the 1 inch thick glob of white cat hair...yikes!!!

The problem was:

#1- It was velvet, which meant whenever this happened...I got a new blob of cat hair-
and #2- It just wasn't that visually appealing to me. BLAH!

So...I decided to fix the problem with some fabric that Bette gave me a while back. Thanks, Bette!

Nothing too special, just some new fabric, a hot glue gun, a brown pillow and---Viola!

A new, "lovelier" (is that a word?) chair with fabric that is WAY more cat friendly!

So I guess I could have called this post "Make it Better Monday!" Lol!

Oh, P.S.----

Remember me telling you about the Bilo Bonus Bucks, well here's proof that it PAYS OFF!

$48 worth of gas in the big 'Burb for only $27.18! Yay!

One more quick thing...

I've started teaching the 3 year old Sunday School class and God is already teaching me awesome things through those cute kiddos! Our lesson this week was about how much God loves us. I think we all underestimate how much God loves us at times. It's so simple yet so very profound. Sometimes it's hard to accept love--- from God and from others, but if we do, we find so much joy and satisfaction! And by accepting all of God's love we can give others the love of God that overflows from us. He doesn't give us just enough to fill our cup, after all, He gives us plenty so that we can make a BIG difference in the lives of others!

Your love, O LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies ~Psalm 36:5

Love,
Laura

I had a wonderful BiLo Fuel Perks experience yesterday. I paid $18 to fill up my gas tank. I cannot think of the last time I paid less than $20.

That is definitely a fab job on the chair.. The cats loved it huh? ;)

One of my favorite quotes: "Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved" by Victor Hugo It kinda reminds me of what you said about your Sunday lesson! :)

What a sweet chair re-do! Glad you are sharing your life and God's love with the little ones. What a blessing you are! It is amazing that as we pour out He continues to pour into us till we overflow. Keep shining! :)

I'm so happy to see that the bonus bucks are paying off for everyone! Us gals love saving money, don't we?!

I love the blue fabric! And I think it goes much better with the white of the rest of the chair - but then, I love blue.

I teach 2 and 3-yr-olds Sunday school at our church and I just love the way the little ones soak up the truth of God's Word. You are a blessing to your little pupils and to their parents!
