Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

$20

It's no secret I love a good deal, even better a good deal and a project :). I bought this junky chair the other day for $20, I probably overpaid the guy, I need to learn to haggle, but I'm real excited how we spruced it up
My assistant and I painted it a gray blue and recovered it in white cotton.
This is my assistant, don't let her size fool you this girl can work...her favorite show is Color Splash on HGTV, she's seen every episode a dozen times. She is going to have her own design business by the time she's 12, I can feel it. It's a great way for her and I to spend $20, we have so much fun. She's my bud...
