Over at Nalle’s House, Anu asks, “A folding chair is great for small spaces, parties and as additional seating, but what do you do with it while it’s not in use?  I decided to make my vintage folding chair serve double duty as seating and as a command center in my front entry.”

Refinished-bed-frame

When Manda and her Mom refinished this gorgeous old bed frame, they ran into a little glitch: modern day mattresses are a little bigger than the ones this bed was made for. To solve that dilemma, they pulled out the old frame and slats and attached the headboard and footboard to a modern, metal frame.
