So leave it to an interior decorator to just happen to have an extra fabric swatch lying around, which he quickly applied over the ragged old one with a nail gun. He said he would have used a staple gun, but that's all the neighbors had for him to use and it easily did the trick.
This fine example of wooden seating now rests in Ciolli's bedroom corner topped with a lime green pillow and a vintage, velvet riding cap that he placed there just for fun. Underneath the chair sits a pouf fashioned out of the fabric bag that once packaged a factory-fresh set of Liberty of London for Target bedding for which Ciolli paid $25 at a tag sale.
Do you have an example of a fabulous find that cost you absolutely nothing? A little something that you were amazed hadn't been snatched up by someone else? If so, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, send me a photo, and tell me your story.
