Thrift Store Bamboo Chair Makeover

Another day, another thrift store chair makeover. This bamboo chair caught my eye at the thrift store, BUT I wasn't loving the price. I took a chance and waited a week and got it for half price-- $7.50. I loved the shape of the chair, the curved back and rounded arms.

The blonde color of the bamboo wasn't the look I wanted so I upcycled it or changed it to suit my style.

Devotional on God Seeing Beauty in our Scars
Happy Sunday! "Why are you taking a picture of a dead tree?" hubby asked. "Because I think the branches are pretty against the blue sky," was my reply. Do you see beauty where others do not? Jesus does. Jesus does not look at our broken and our scars and our "ugly" in disgust. He sees ours scars as places where he wants to love on us. He sees our life stories in the ugly places and wants to show us his beautiful grace in the flaws. God does not disregard the broken, but he uses our fractured and damaged parts to show his love to us and others. Do not hide the unseemly parts of your life from God (because, really, we can't even if want to), but rather let Jesus work to make them beautiful.

I have not been in the workshop for over a month, but I finally played in there over the weekend and came up with a fun, fall sign.

I started with 3 1/2" wide pallet boards that I cut into squares. I cut 25 squares.

Devotional on Letting God Work Things Out
Glacier National Park is one of my favorite places because it is so beautiful. A lot of its beauty can be seen out a car window, but, if you are willing to take some time and effort (i.e. hike), you can experience incredible views and sights. I find God works in our lives the same way. There are some good things that are relatively easy to see and experience, but much of what God works out in our lives takes time and patience. Waiting on God and trusting that HE will work everything out is never easy, but when we love Jesus we know that the effort in the waiting is worth it. Rest in knowing that he is working everything out.
