Desk part 2

A much less painful project, relatively speaking, I was able to finish the table in 24 hours which was nice. I'm all about quick turn over!

Table for one... or rather, why don't you make that ... Two!

It may seem like I've been slacking off but I've actually been keeping myself occupied with my next project which would be this little beauty:

This is the end, beautiful friends

I was going to wait a couple days to post the final product of the heinous chair but I know that there's *someone* who has been waiting to see and I've been keeping her in suspense so I won't make her wait any longer ...
A reminder of the ugly
 But first ... the rest of the journey to get there ....

Should have stuck to matchboxes

I have reason to believe my car is out to get me. I feel like I'm in a real life version of The Car ... except without as much gore and scary.

Dinner and a show

Yesterday was my 1st floor neighborlady's birthday. I think she'd kick my butt if I announced how young she turned. She's certainly older than me by... a handful of years.

Just the staples

Hello my friends,

I thought I'd share some more of the bane of my existence/my pride and joy.... my chair.
As I showed you before, the chair started out looking like this:

I'm almost embarrassed ...

I thought it would be funny to post some photos of my .... ahem... erm... 'sewing case'.

I've got the over/under

Today's post has been inspired.. by a trip to the bathroom.

Happy chairs to you until we meet again

I decided as my first real DIY project to reupholster this chair and what a nightmare! I'm blaming the bad paint job on the fact that I decided to do it in 100 degree weather. That's my story and I'm sticking to it (It had NOTHING to do with the fact that I'm impatient to get the chair finished or the fact that I felt that ALL neighborhood eyes were on me seeing as 6 different houses look into my back yard where I did the painting) 

Have you seen my stapler?

Hello friends,
A few years ago I had purchased this little simple staple gun for small easy projects (I think I got it for replacing the fabric on my hope chest)

Mystery Chair

Hello friends!
About 6 years ago I was living in the dark dank desperately depressing city of Syracuse NY. My landlord was cleaning out his garage and he offered this rocking chair to me (which of course I snatched up!)
I have been curious about it ever since he gave it to me. It's small (short) but not child-size small (I should have taken the measurements before posting!) I'm tossing this out there to you all in hopes that someone might know some details as far as what the chair's original use may have been or any sort of information you may be able to provide to shed some light on the origins.

It's story time!

For my first real post I figured I'd start it off with and make a BIG impression with a story! (Brace yourselfs kids, because I like to tell stories!)

My first blog!

Hi and welcome to my blog! I've never done this before so please be patient.

So what's the reason behind the name of my blog? Well, first and foremost, I'm snarky. But second to that, I have a lot of grand ideas of things that I would like to try. DIY projects and the like. I will try to be as honest in my attempts at these projects hence the good (hopefully a lot of good!) and more often than not, the bad. But always the snarky.
