Sneak Peak: Matched Set

My name is Pat and I am a chair-a-holic.

Yes, people. I've done it again. I brought home more chairs.
If you recall, I brought these diamonds in the rough home a couple of years ago.

Today, my boss, knowing my affliction for the prop, informed me of three such specimens behind our building. My boss is officially my favorite person today.

Thrifting: Lights, Lights, Lights!

This episode of thrifting at the Wheele House, is brought to you by Kijiji and the ReStore!
If you have never checked out a ReStore by Habitat for Humanity, I strongly recommend it.
I always check there first before I head to the Big Box stores for my home improvements.

DIY: Patio Furniture Covers

We had no idea what to expect with regards to our back yard.
It was covered in snow both during the house hunting trip and in the real estate photos.
We were eager for some nicer weather so that we could determine what we were working with.

As you can see, there is a gazebo structure, and it turns out the covers were available in the garage: Score!

DIY: House Numbers

It is the little things that annoy me.
Like how my address looks like it says "Toast".
And why is every single house number on an angle? So weird.

In any case, these tarnished mix of number styles and sizes needed to go.

Free Stuff: Plants

Kijiji comes through again in a BIG way.

I say big, because in neither case could I anticipate what I was actually getting. But I was just excited to get some free plants considering I had to give up so many of mine when we moved.
