thrifty stool.

I bought this stool on Saturday at a local thrift store for 5 bucks. Obviously it is in terrible shape and I see it as a good first project on refinishing the wood and reupholstering the top. I already have taken it completely apart, removed the old fabric, and I am half way done sanding it.
I plan to give the wood a nice finish with Minwax. Thinking about going for a slightly darker finish. I am still completely undecided on fabric, need something durable and bold. Any suggestions are welcome.

table stuff.

A table that was bombarded with stickers, marker, and paint while at my college house in Salisbury with my garagemates assistance. Presently working on coating it to protect everything.

crazy old man.

A picture that my mom purchased in college in Ithaca, NY that I adopted when I took off for school myself. During my freshman year I customized it as my own by coloring in the hair with a Prismacolor marker. I just touched it up, it was more purple last go around but it had faded over the past couple years. The original photograph is by Joe Covello tagged #353.
