The Barrel Chair

I think I paid $5.00 for this.  Maybe it was $2.00, I don't remember.  It is a rocking chair made from a wooden keg.  Well it has potential.  I know that I'm not the only one that sees that...right?

In my stash of treasures I had an old quilt that I think cost about $3.00.    It was pretty rough in spots.  But I knew that it had potential to be something else.  I wish I had time to realize all the potential of all the junk I gather...but there isn't enough time in the world. 

But for a grand total of either $5.00 or $8.00, I still can't remember, this one sad little chair is all better.  All she needs is a little girl with messy braids, bobby socks and a tattered edition of The House on Pooh Corner.
