Every amateur home improvement guru needs herself one of these. Below is my reliable old Kenmore sewing machine. It works better and is sturdier than the newer ones. And when the case is opened I detect a delightful faint scent of mildew. Ahhhh lovely.
I made these two ottomans with milkcrates, a glue gun, cushions, and fabric (which I bought on sale for 2.99$ a yard).
The print above the couch was purchased for 5$ at a garage sale. The kitty was a stray who adopted me.
